In this month’s episode, host Ramesh Tripathi meets with four key female figures in vascular medicine, Julie Freischlag (Wake Forest Baptist Health, NC, US), Erica L Mitchell (Uni of Tennessee, US), Bernadette Aulivola (Loyola University, IL, US) and Shipra Arya (Uni of Stanford, CA, US) to discuss what it means to be a woman in vascular surgery today.


They discuss their personal experiences as women in vascular medicine, share the challenges and issues they have faced as a result of gender bias and consider how leadership principles and society support can help move the dial to remove these barriers for future generations.
