❤️👏🏾 "In honor of #FilipinoHeritageMonth we would like to share Fe Del Mundo's incredible journey 🦋 In 1936, Del Mundo became the first woman to be enrolled at Harvard Medical School 🎓, nine years before women were allowed to attend the campus. When she graduated from the University of the Philippines, the President of the Philippines offered to pay for her post-graduate work at the university of her choice. So she chose to go to Harvard. Not knowing Del Mundo was a woman, Harvard admitted her to their ranks. At a time when gender barriers were the norm, Harvard discovered Del Mundo's gender, but allowed her to remain as a student because of her magnificent academic work. In 1957 Del Mundo opened the first pediatric hospital in the Philippines 🏥✊🏼✊🏽"
