Call to Action

Healthcare is a national issue with an antiquated structure full of
biases. The current environment may be empowering our institutions to
maintain self-interest over morality. In this book, I explain my
personal experiences with gender bias during my 28 year career as an
emergency physician affiliated with the University of Rochester. I am
happy to hear there is a new (2019) Office of Equity and Inclusion at
the University of Rochester.
Frontline workers are mostly women and they need basic policies
to protect them.
Legislation must prioritize:

Prevent workplace harassment
Eliminate the pay gap
Legislate paid sick days and paid leave
Fund child care for families
End pregnancy and caregiver discrimination

Advice for Students:

Follow your dreams
Maintain your values
Never give up
Speak truth to power
