This wonderful woman was born in Santiago on 25 th June. She was the first woman to study at the University, and the first one that became a doctor in Chile. Diaz graduated on december 27, 1886.
She started working at a hospital on January 1891. Insunza worked as a teacher from 1889 to 1897, and she was named the School Medical Supervisor of Santiago in 1898. Eloisa founded polyclinics for the poor and school camps. In 1910 she participated in Hygiene and Medicine International Scientific Congress in Buenos Aires.
Diaz was named director of a school and she implemented school breakfasts and compaigns to fight alcoholism, rickets and tuberculosis. In 1950 she went to the San Vicente hospital, where she died at the age of 84. I believe that this woman is an example to follow. She didn't waste her time with foolish things, for instance, she just wanted to help the poor and drug addicted.
