Connie Myers Guion (August 29, 1882 – April 30, 1971) revolutionized health care for the poor in New York City and training for new health care professionals at Cornell Medical Center and also founded the Cornell Pay Clinic, which supported the poor in the city and brought in training. She was also the first woman to be named professor of clinical medicine and in 1963 became the first living woman physician to have a building named after her (New York Hospital's Connie Guion Building). Up until her death, she made many house calls and ran her own private clinic.
Guion was born in River Bend Plantation near Lincolnton, North Carolina on August 29, 1882. She earned a degree from Wellesley College in 1906. She earned her M.A. in 1913 and M.D. in 1917 from Cornell University Medical College at the top of her class. She died on April 30, 1971.
