Empowering Women Physicians

Jan 10, 2019

In this episode, we celebrate the arrival of the first woman physician in Congress, Dr. Kim Schrier.   Woo hooooo!!!   As well as celebrating  over 100 women now representing us in congress (127 to be exact; 102 in the House and 25 in the Senate). 


We also ask you to consider looking for opportunities.  There are many places where you may feel powerless but may be able to start to take back your power.
