You may have seen me at ASCO 2018 (June 1–5) sporting an orange dot on my badge and staring at the badge of every woman physician who walked by scanning for a fellow orange dot.Well, there was a method to my madness, and its name is the Hematology & Oncology Women Physician Wolfpack Facebook Group, and our identifying mark for ASCO 2018 was the orange sticker on our badge.
About Shikha Jain, MD FACP
I am a practicing, board-certified hematology/oncology physician in Chicago. I speak on topics ranging from the impact of social media on healthcare, how physicians can utilize social media, how to write Op-eds in the medical world, gender equity and barriers to career advancement, and topics in GI oncology and immunotherapy. My goal is to explain complicated topics in simple terms. I also enjoy writing and you can find some of my writing on this site. I am a mother to three amazing kids and married to a gastroenterologist. I look forward to connecting with you.
