What is the thread connecting the first U.S. Army dietician; the first licensed aviatrix in America; the bacteriologist who developed the first successful whooping cough vaccine; a conservation-minded geologist; a founder of the Youth for Understanding exchange program; and the first person to survive a trip over Niagara Falls in a barrel?

These women, and many others, are members of the Michigan Women’s Hall of Fame. Join us to discover the stories of these outstanding women and their remarkable achievements!
