Tuesday 8th March 2022 celebrates International Women's Day and St Duthac Day. We are delighted that Dr Elizabeth MacBean Ross whose home town is Tain, is being celebrated, in a presentation at 1 p.m. by Tain & District Museum, during our pop up event. Elizabeth Ness MacBean Ross was a Scottish physician who worked in Persia among the Bakhtiari people. With training and a post-graduate qualification in tropical medicine, she responded to an appeal for doctors by the Serbian government in 1915 and treated Serbian casualties, most of whom were victims of typhus. Ross's life and work is commemorated by a plaque in her home town of Tain.
