Alice Ball / Chaulmoogra Seed Enamel Pin

9

Alice Ball, pioneering chemist and developer of the first effective treatment for leprosy, is celebrated in our new hard enamel pin, the first in our Women in Science series.

Alice Ball developed a method for isolating the beneficial compounds from the oil of the chaulmoogra seed (pictured in this pin), creating an extract that became the preferred method for treating leprosy.

This pin comes with a fold-out card with Alice's story.

Attractive conversation piece

I love my new pin. Not only does it look attractive, but it has a great story behind it and represents the importance of recognition.

Total Hit at Award Ceremony

I got this pin as a gift for my wife who was winning a research award since Alice Ball was a bad *** scientist breaking through barriers as a black woman in the sciences in the early 1900s. I was unable to attend the ceremony, but my wife said she got so many compliments on the pin and everyone thought it was so cool. Thanks, Dissent Pins! I'm Husband of the Year for sure!

I want more!

I would love for this to be the beginning of an _extensive_ collection of pins honoring women in STEM, especially women of color.
