Dr Jeannie MacLeod (1872 – 1902) was the second ever female graduate of the University of Aberdeen’s Medical School, graduating in 1902 shortly before her tragic and premature death. Jeannie was a pioneer who helped pave the way for future women doctors; her remarkable talent set a precedent not only of equality, but for how successful women could be. Join us for the reveal of a recently commissioned portrait in celebration of her life and incredible achievements.

There will also be the opportunity to hear a short talk with the artist Richard Greaves and with family member Dr Bob Clarke, as well as meet some current medical students who have been studying Jeannie’s history and legacy.
