Voices in Anesthesiology

"I see where we could go if we weren’t so constrained by these historical notions of what people are supposed to do."
"In medicine, we need to continue to codify how diversity and inclusion efforts are essential for eliminating existing healthcare disparities, driving value-based care, fostering innovation, and bettering the financial bottom line."
"We’re systems thinkers; we have the ability to influence care on a systems level that can make it more inclusive for our patients, as well as our faculty, colleagues and trainees."
