Health Care Leadership Tweet Chat #HCLDR

Recently, a conversation took place on twitter that focused on three topics involving health care leadership. AMWADoctors and WomenSurgeons invited members of the community to tweet responses and feelings surrounding the importance of diversity in health care. Members of the chat were also encouraged to submit comments about how to encourage women and other underrepresented minorities to pursue careers in non-traditional fields. Finally, the conversation asks participants how we can stop discriminatory behavior in the healthcare setting. Overall, the conversation was encouraging and enlightening, as members submitted tweets discussing the changing face of medicine. Minerva Romero Arenas, MD moderated the weekly tweetchat. Check out highlights from the chat below!
