Thank you @ColleenKraft for being consistently vocal 💪🏼💪🏿💪🏽

Let’s work on #tweetiatrician #advocacy training by @AmerAcadPeds to have more robust & effective strategies vs increasing backlash & #bullying
as experienced by @NicoleB_MD @DrToddWo, worse for #minoritiesinmedicine
From @bfrist on #LinkedIn: concerning loss of scientific #integrity by political agendas

#scicomm teaching has been to “avoid politics” = sitting in sidelines

why engaged #tweetiatrician were a separate species apart from other #STEM professionals

We need to be multidisciplinary like work with school nurse leader @RobinCogan

When I have taught official @AmerAcadPeds guidelines to trainees in hospital settings & staff member has walked by, they assumed “political” & “unprofessional” when per AAP

Love, LOVE @NicoleB_MD for doing this. Shout out to @DrToddWo & @DrJCoftheDC too for their savvy outreach to youth patients- am especially impressed with @DrJCoftheDC of @OHSUNews as a role model in communities of color. @AmerAcadPeds #TikTok #tweetiatrician #Pediatrics
*This* is what it means to create “safe space” - no shaming or judgement, only encouragement, kindness, affirmation from a #tweetiatrician who shares that she too was a #teenmom.
Meet patients where they are.
Be a role model.

Am learning so much from @DrJCoftheDC of @OHSUNews - on engaging youth through new forms of #socialmedia like #TikTok and being a role model for #BlackExcellence here in partnership with @NFL players @NFLPA

Umbereen S Nehal MD MPH: who is this person? Several people have been asking

A thread

Where am I from? Hooboy.
Let’s say, citizen of the world, human ping pong ball. Third culture kid. Genetic mutt

Born: 🇺🇸
🇵🇰 parents - when my parents born colonial rule, pre-Pakistan
To thoroughly annoy my Twitter bestie, @DrvanTilburg

Am an ENFP - a cross between Snoopy, Robin Willians, Ellen Degeneres, Dr. Seuss, Charles Dickens, Upton Sinclair

I border on ENTP - love new info and love to challenge in order to break through barriers or limitations
My great-grandfather was given title "Khan Bahadur" (brave). As a judge, a brown man under Colonial rule, he threw the book at a British attorney. "Learn the law" if in his courtroom. Hence my stiff moral backbone

My mom & me:

(She loves this song)

Amazing session at #ASMicrobe on increasing DIVERSITY in the workplace:
1-Everything about maintaining diversity needs to be deliberate
2- Institutions need to review their mission statement
3- Draw awareness to biases
4- Work towards maintaining diverse workforce
There are examples of underrepresented groups/people not being treated fairly in the workplace. Their efforts are not recognised and acknowledged similar to others and unequal responsibilities are given to them. We have to work towards creating an inclusive culture. #ASMicrobe
Recruitment process also needs to be fair. Selection starts from filtering applicants based on school attended. But this is not the only factor which reflects the skills & experience the person has. The Q should be what this person could bring to your organisation? #ASMicrobe

Not better as an attending. Support mechanisms for residents lost. Stress of liability & productivity metrics. “Ambassador” status remains. “You are one of the good ones” a lactation RN told me, “You follow the rules.”
@choo_ek @RheaBoydMD @Priyanka_Dayal @DrJRMarcelin
That lactation RN then said “My ancestors did not fight in the Revolutionary War 4 ppl to come here with their hand out” & “Slavery happened a long time ago. People need to get over it”

Identified as “one of the good ones”, she’d felt comfortable saying this to me on minorities
That left struggling with the cognitive dissonance of her words: how did she simultaneously take credit for ancestors fighting in the Revolutionary War (at the end, slavery was codefied into law until another war was fought to end it) and AlSO tell others to “get over” the past?
