“The first female physician to practice at Cincinnati Children’s was Katherine “Katie” Dodd, MD. She was highly admired and led the way for other females to work in the field of medicine.”(1) In honor of International Day of Women and Girls in Science, celebrated on February 11 each year, Dr. Rama Ayyalla is being recognized as following in her footsteps.
