#LadyPodSquad

This blog has been dormant for a moment. I’ve recently grown to appreciate the importance of sharing my voice, and trumpeting that of other #LadyPodSquad.

What is the #LadyPodSquad?

The idea initially came to me while connecting with other female orthopaedic surgeons (LadyPods) on social media, primarily Instagram and Facebook. In a field with under 6% females, the online community is one of much needed support,  a #braintrust, and safe space.

“You can’t be what you can’t see.”

The #LadyPodSquad also shines a light on this great world of #orthopaedicsurgery, with the goal of exposing young women and girls to explore the field further.  Through the power of social media, college and medical students have contacted me from near and far. My goal is to continue to #payitforward, lifting as I climb.

Stay tuned…
