ACOG Betsey, Lucy and Anarcha Days of Recognition

Every year on February 28 and March 1, the dates that bridge Black History Month and Women’s History Month, ACOG formally acknowledges Betsey, Lucy, and Anarcha, the three enslaved Black women whose exploitation led to foundational advances in the field of obstetrics and gynecology that benefit millions of patients today.

This year, ACOG held the first-ever Betsey, Lucy, and Anarcha Memorial Lecture “Achieiving Justice in Medicine.” Watch the archived lecture here.
