The Beauty in Breaking: A Talk with Doctors Martha Sosa-Johnson ’83 and Elaine Davenport ’87, P’23

July 15, 2021 @ 5:00 pm

Join us for this conversation with Martha Sosa-Johnson ’83 and Elaine (Evans) Davenport ’87, P’23 to discuss their experiences in the medical profession, how their role in the healing process of others shapes their own lives, and the importance of creating networks of support with other female physicians. In The Beauty in Breaking, Dr. Michele Harper tells her story of healing emotionally and physically and how understanding the pain and recovery of others taught her to heal herself. Our very own Pitzer alumnae, Martha Sosa-Johnson, doctor and clinical professor at the University of California, Irvine, School of Medicine and Elaine Davenport, doctor of Pediatrics, Oakland Medical Center, come together for this book club talk to reflect on their journeys of breaks and fixes.

This event is presented as part of the Pitzer College Alumni & Family Book Club, a component of Pitzer@Home, created by the Office of Alumni & Family Engagement. Pitzer@Home provides resources to educate, entertain, and support the College’s alumni and family communities, bringing Pitzer into your home wherever you are.
