This is a brief account of a selection of brilliant Quakers in search of medical truths often set against a stark background of religious prejudice and adversity. Their achievements make an inspiring lesson in medical sciences, history, compassion, and philanthropy. John Pearce, a neurologist and author of many papers and books, highlights the extraordinary discoveries and services to Medicine and to the wider community made by British Quakers, both doctors and scientists.
