The Illnesses & Invalids in Emma

Ever wonder what is really wrong with Mr. Woodhouse and, more importantly, why is something wrong with him?  How serious was Harriet’s sore throat?  And what’s the matter with Mrs. Churchill?  Join us for the 241st birthday of Jane Austen Saturday, December 3rd  to as Dr. Cheryl Kinney reviews multiple characters’ complaints and conditions and explores the ways in which Jane Austen uses sicknesses and symptoms for literary design. 

Dr. Cheryl Kinney,a Dallas gynecologist received her M.D. from Indiana University. In addition to her private practice Dr. Kinney volunteers with the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs addressing the needs of female veterans in the Dallas area. Dr. Kinney has been listed in “Best Doctors in America” since 2001, named as one of “America’s Top Obstetricians and Gynecologist” yearly since 2002 (top 1% of all OB/GYNs in the US), and chosen as a “Texas Super Doctor” by her peers for the last ten years. She serves on the National Advisory Board for the Laura W. Bush Institute of Women’s Health, secretary of the board of the Jane Bozart Foundation and was on the national board of the Jane Austen Society of North America from 2010-2015.
