On a busy day early in her career in her hepatology clinic, Carla Brady, MD, associate professor of medicine (Gastroenterology), entered the exam room to meet a new patient referred to her for Hepatitis C management.
The patient, a young mother who was pregnant with her second child, pulled out her cell phone and showed Brady a photo of her 3-year-old child.
“She said to me, ‘I want to show you a picture so that I can give you a face to put with the reason as to why I’m sitting here in front of you in the clinic,” said Brady. “I thought to myself, ‘this is validation for what I really, really want to do and that’s taking care of pregnant women with liver disorders.’”
