What inspired you to work with Equity in Medicine?

I was hopeful to join up with other individuals who share the same passion to make medicine a more inclusive and better place.

Name a physician leader who inspires you and why?

I am inspired by Dr. Margaret Burnett - she was my mentor, a fantastic surgeon, and leader in medicine who is an advocate for equity.

My hope is with further education and consciousness raising that we may come together and find solutions to ameliorate the current climate in medicine, medical education, and the leadership in medicine.

What is your hope for physicians with respect to EDI in the future?
