You can hear a clip from this episode on our BEST OF SEASON ONE file, available as a free podcast download on iTunes.
Thanks to the AMWA (American Medical Women’s Association) chapter at the Boonshoft School of Medicine, the Radio Rounds team hosted a Mother’s Day lunch event in the WWSU radio station!
Dr. Amy Reed is a vascular surgeon at the University of Cincinnati — one of less than 200 female vascular surgeons in the United States. She spoke to us about her decision to become a surgeon, her experience during her training, and her ability to balance her family with a demanding professional career. We were also joined by Dr. Sheela Barhan, an OB/GYN in Dayton, Ohio. Dr. Barhan is also the Director of the Boonshoft School of Medicine’s “Women in Medicine” elective course, and she spoke to us about the benefits of that course.
Our other guests on this episode included Joanna Hurrell (accompanied by her mother; second year student and President of AMWA at Wright State), Michelle Kline and Nicole Majoras (first year students who took the aforementioned “Women in Medicine” elective course this year), and Laura Previll (a second year student who joined us on air and read a moving poem dedicated to her mother).
