Rebecca Lee Crumpler was the first African-American woman to become a Doctor of Medicine in the US in 1864. She primarily treated poor women and children, dedicating her life to their medical treatment and study. She published A Book of Medical Discourses in 1883, one of the first publications written by an African-American about medicine, and the only book written by a female physician in the 19th century. She paved the way for women in medicine.
