Flowers for Dr. Bath

Dr. Eraka Bath graciously accepted the award for her mother’s induction into the National Women’s Hall of Fame last week. Dr. Patricia Beth was the first Black woman doctor to receive a medical patent. The Howard University graduate was decorated with “firsts” as she was the first Black woman to be appointed to the faculty of UCLA’s School of Medicine Jules Stein Eye Institute, the first Black woman to chair an ophthalmology residency program in the US and the first Black woman doctor to receive a medical patent leading to her invention of the laserphaco probe that removes cataracts and is still used today in hospitals around the world. The induction ceremony was held in New York City. The late Dr. Bath has been inducted with tennis champion Serena Williams, pioneering scholar Kimberlé Crenshaw, educational innovator Peggy McIntosh and six other trailblazing women.
