Justina Ford overcame barriers of race and gender to become the first African-American woman to practice medicine in Colorado. Dr. Ford arrived in Colorado in 1902 and was initially denied a Colorado medical license. Working out of a private office in Denver's Five Points neighborhood, she treated minorities who were not allowed in Denver hospitals, and delivered over 7,000 babies in the course of her career.
