2/ I was raised Catholic and believe in this (ctto via reddit)

Love thy neighbor.
All neighbors. No exceptions.

If I really hated them then I just did not hang out w them 🤷🏻‍♀️. No hateful speech or hateful laws.
3/ Most of my family in Texas is religious, republican, & single issue voters. Anti abortion, no matter what. Even if M@ga Trumpism breaks all the other 9 commandments.

I hate that I now have to discuss forced-birth issues w beloveds.

I'm a social entrepreneur #feminist

Let’s talk #GenderEquity to start. We all know #WomenInMedicine are getting burned out and leaving the workforce. And it’s not because they aren’t “resilient” or “ambitious” but bc there are barriers in place that result in women working twice as hard and not getting recognition
That happens across the board but we see it in #WomenInOncology as well. A pub just out in @ASCOPost w @DrSGraff @NarjustDumaMD @drdonsdizon and colleagues describes some of the challenges and solutions…
The onus of addressing these inequities should not fall on the shoulders of those who are most impacted by these inequities. Unfortunately as @bridgetMDPhD @LekshmiMD and I described in our paper on the #ThirdShift that is exactly what happens.

Sharing a thread 🧵 of some amazing #WomenInMedicine who are making a difference and using their voices to change the narrative. Sharing a few pieces here that came out today with different reflections on this years #WIMSummit @doximity
First up @RakheeBhayaniMD kicks off her powerful piece (her first OpEd!) “Empower. Educate. Elevate. Those are the words that come to mind as I reflect on my experience at the recent virtual #WIMSummit.”

Next @CShoush shares how this years #WIMSummit helped her find her voice. “ I now counteract “What makes you special-why you?” With a newly energized, inspired and courageous rebuttal. Now I respond with “Why not me?” And then I take the step forward into the unknown.”

Today is my 10y anniversary @NorthwellHealth @ZuckerSoM @NorthwellPMR and 2 years as Vice-Chair
i thought i would share some thoughts on what has helped me get to a place of happiness in my career
I am so fortunate to have chosen #CancerRehab as my #physiatry subspecialty. My patients bring me joy and inspire me, allowing me to see every day as a gift not to be taken for granted.
My @CancerRehabDocs
colleagues have built an amazing national Cancer rehab med organization and it's been so great to see this group include anyone with a passion for cancer rehab from trainees to retirees and push our specialty forward

I wrote this article for my own catharsis. I never expected it to be peer reviewed. When @NEJM accepted it, I experienced my first panic attack. 1/
@WomenInMedicine @WomeninOnc @AMWADoctors @womeninmedchat @WomeninAcademi1
My sudden physiologic reaction took me by surprise and was really embarrassing – I was super tachycardic, diaphoretic, and vasovagal. Then had an intense parasympathetic reaction with acute-onset diarrhea. TMI, sorry. 2/
When I managed to recoup, I realized - how dare this system, this culture, make me feel so panicked about being vulnerable, truthful, and righteously angry? 3/

Happy #InternationalWomensDay

My #challenge to all of you: know that you are enough. Today and always.
As my dear friend @corinnehammons posted today - this day feels like a bit much right now. We have been trying for so long. And this year has set women - particularly women of color - back, so deeply. And other struggles like #antiracism feel more urgent and less self-centering.
I think back to the women who created this day, a century ago. They would be both amazed and horrified by how far we have done, & by how little has changed.

We know from @SashaShillcutt & @JulieSilverMD’s @NEJM paper, that social media has become an important avenue for women physicians to gather, providing #WomeninMedicine new avenues to share information & experiences:… #SheforShe
We wanted to better understand the #womenincardiology Twitter network – not just how many tweets, but more *how* the network is being used & if it is *useful*
We analyzed #ACCWIC #WomeninCardiology #ilooklikeacardiologist #AHAWIC #WomeninEP & #SCAIWIN

“[...] the more I have spoken about feminism the more I have realized that fighting for women’s rights has too often become synonymous with man-hating. If there is one thing I know for certain, it is that this has to stop.”

“For the record, feminism by definition is: “The belief that men and women should have equal rights and opportunities. It is the theory of the political, economic and social equality of the sexes.”

“My recent research has shown me that feminism has become an unpopular word.
Apparently I am among the ranks of women whose expressions are seen as too strong, too aggressive, isolating, anti-men and, unattractive. Why is the word such an uncomfortable one?”

"For almost a year now, healthcare workers have been at the frontline fighting the #covid19 pandemic... but the vaccine isn't going to address the #mentalhealth effects of this grueling pandemic on HCWs"

Honored to discuss w/ @drsanjaygupta & @drjessigold…
I share stories of friends and colleagues (& myself!) struggling with the virus.

Stories of being threatened by patients.

And Jessi shares how she counsels folks like me.
As @drsanjaygupta says - "Balancing hope and honesty" is part of our job in medicine.

We need to find sustenance for ourselves, & her communities.

And I will tell you: this conversation sustained ME.

This does not surprise BIPOC. We live it daily. The rest of you often deny our lived reality or assume it is exaggerated. Then you are shocked and ask “what happened to my country”

what happened: is you insisting on keeping your head in the sand & shutting down truth tellers
Most liberal/progressive types who get super excited by data... data that are incomplete, flawed, or based on people lying in polls due to social acceptability bias. But many liberal intellectuals are
Very little has changed since this was written by MLK. Very little has changed since my grandfather was training in England in Colonial times (there he was considered “black” and black/brown more similar as BAME) as a highly skilled surgeon (ophthalmologist) but sub-human.

I can scarcely believe it! Our paper, "Seven decades of chemotherapy clinical trials: a pan‑cancer social network analysis" is finally out! @Hem_Onc 1/n
In this paper, we systematically analyzed co-authorship patterns of 29,197 authors of 5,599 publications of prospective clinical trials in oncology over 70+ years! Source: 2/n
Hematology/oncology is a field of subfields, all of which have grown but not at the same pace. For example, the study of multiple myeloma got a big boost coincident with reports of efficacy of thalidomide and bortezomib (#2 in the figure) @rubinstein_md @mtmdphd 3/n

I am leaving the ER right now and reading @edyong209's newest masterful piece on #covid19 for the second time.

I have to say - tonight, this piece is everything.…
Because ---

My patients with #COVID19 are still afraid. They may be "strong", but they are scared. With good reason.

And so are we, the healthcare providers: bc PPE & testing are still in short supply, yet the 2nd wave is here.

And the rhetoric makes us feel like failures
So this piece!!!

It reinforces that REAL strength is so very far apart from the toxic salespitch of Trump & co.

He suggests that the strongest amongst us are not those who boast the most. It is those of us who can hold space for uncertainty, and then move forward.

Jumping from the #LEADatStanfordMed Diversity and Inclusion Forum to the @StanfordWellMD Physician #Wellness Forum... Today, we'll be doing a journal club!

#doctorsarehumanstoo #whatdoctorslooklike
On the first paper:
820 physicians and 57 leaders took the survey
As an aside, there are more men than women in #leadership positions in this study.

Burnout score, professional fulfillment score, self valuation score among leaders, and their wellness scores.

Role model effect. No associations between leaders' scores of burnout, professional fulfillment and self-valuation with the same outcomes for those who they supervised.

Sleep impairment, however, shows an association.

Key readings: Chapters 1-3 of the highly recommended💫 Sense & Nonsense by Laland & @GillianRBrown1 (2011). Provides a great introduction to evolutionary approaches to human behavior - I hope a 3rd edition of this book comes along soon!! Image

I was blown away by the #ANES20 Rovenstine lecture from @JoanneConroyMD
She initated a call to action for anesthesiologists by acknowledging the biggest issues for our specialty:
Disruption sums up 2020. Our lives will never be the same. But disruption can make things better. Let's embrace it & lead periop medicine. Telehealth connects us to pts out of the OR, for preop eval & postop follow-up. Working remotely creates innovative practice structures.
3/8 #ANES20
#Equity focused on gender, drawing attention to the #genderpaygap & #motherhoodpenalty, 2 real elements that are often dismissed. There hasn’t been much progress around eliminating them, even after identification years ago! As @JoanneConroyMD said:
