Sharon Baltman

In person

I’ve been lucky enough to have a woman as my doctor for a long time now, so it’s easy to forget that women weren’t always welcome at medical schools. Sharon Baltman experienced that discrimination when she attended U of T’s med school in the mid-60s. She writes about her school days, subsequent travels across Canada, Europe and Israel and why she decided to become a psychotherapist in her absorbing memoir, Escape From The Bedside ($16.85, CreateSpace). Baltman reads from her book Saturday (April 12) at Wychwood Barns. See book listings.
