Women in Medicine: Dr. Sata's twitter series

Wednesday, October 2, 2019

Did you know September was Women in Medicine month? To recognize the growing number of women in the profession and to celebrate the importance of current (and future) female physicians, Suchita Sata, MD, once again tweeted a photo and short description of a female faculty member in the Department of Medicine at Duke each day during the month of September. This was the second year Sata has done this, and we are once again floored by her excitement and commitment to this series.

"Let's celebrate incredible female clinicians, educators, researchers at @dukemedicine. 30 in 30. Too many to highlight everyone in this amazing department, but let's shout it out!"

- Tweet by Suchita Shah Sata, MD, on September 1, 2019.

Dr. Sata highlighted women in all divisions showcasing the diversity of our Department. Diversity in specialty, career pathways, leadership, as well as levels - with junior faculty as well as seasoned ones and women from different backgrounds. 5 of these tweets included women from her own Division of General Internal Medcine. We've embeded those 5 tweets below.
