The gender pay gap and persistent disparities in representation, especially in positions of leadership in academic medicine, have been researched and documented extensively in many medical and surgical fields.
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.
