Blazing a trail for women in medicine

Susan Riddell-Fitzpatrick (BCom’61) was one of only three women to graduate from McGill with a Commerce degree in 1961. She went on to become Chair of the Montreal Neurological Hospital Board from 1993 to 1995. Looking back, Riddell-Fitzpatrick is grateful for the space McGill has given her and her family members to make history and pursue their dreams.
