“The Feminine Touch: The Struggle for Equality in Medicine,” is a WEDU PBS-TV documentary based on the book by Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine (LECOM). Faculty member Thomas Quinn, D.O., has been honored with a Suncoast Regional Emmy Award for best historical documentary. The documentary portrays the battle for women’s acceptance in medicine. “The book and documentary tell the story of the fight against the inequality of the sexes in medicine,” Dr. Quinn explained. Silvia Ferretti, D.O., senior vice-president and provost of LECOM, is prominently featured in the book and documentary. As the first woman to become dean of an osteopathic medical college, Dr. Ferretti has been an inspiration to a generation of female osteopathic physicians, Quinn said. Winners of the Regional Emmy Awards were announced Dec. 2, at a ceremony in Orlando, Florida.
