Morning Reads for National Signing Day (February 3)

Happy National Signing Day, everyone! I’ll be cheering on all the new Dawgs and Heels, naturally. Which teams are you watching?

It’s also National Women Physicians Day, and this year it’s rather more special than normal, as today would be Elizabeth Blackwell’s 200th birthday. National Women Physicians Day is on February 3rd in honor of Dr. Blackwell, who was the first woman to obtain a medical degree in the United States in 1849. Today, women outnumber men in medical school, so we’ll be seeing even more women physicians in the near future. In the midst of a pandemic, I’m especially grateful to them for their hard work and dedication.

Let’s get on to the news.
