Dr. Pringl Miller and Dr. Melissa Blaker explain why it is important to give physicians and surgeons a platform to tell their stories of diversity, equity, and inclusion in medicine in order to cultivate change. Dr. Miller’s prior work with the The Narrative Inquiry in Bioethics Symposium helped to lay the foundation for this collection of interesting stories in order to enhance advocacy and exposure for the conflicts that many face in their workplaces. In doing so, we hope to disrupt the misbelief that these issues do not exist, as well as contribute to changing the narrative for future generations. Inclusivity will better serve the workforce of physicians and surgeons as well as contribute to enhanced patient outcomes.
Tune in to our next episode when we interview Dr. Sarah Temkin, a gynecological oncologist, who will unpack the meaning of the feminization of gynecology.
