Norman Gevitz, Ph. D. (Professor and Chair, Department of Social Medicine, Ohio University, College of Osteopathic Medicine) spoke on the research that he has conducted regarding the practice and view of women medical healers/doctresses in New England from 1620-1722. His research was drawn from colony and town records, wills and inventories, land transactions, men's diaries, letters and vade mecums, as well as printed books designed for English women. For illustration he focused on the life and practice of Joanna Rossiter Cotton who lived during 1642-1702. Gertrude Fraser, Ph. D. (Associate Professor of Anthropology, University of Virginia) concluded the presentation with her comments regarding gender and professionalization in medicine, women transgressors of the social norm, evidence left out in historical inquiry, conflicts arising from failed reciprocity (i.e. the modern day malpractice problem), issues surrounding competence and care, and the particular personality and social standing of Joanna Cotton
