Women in medicine were celebrated and strategies to overcome underrepresentation in leadership positions were discussed during the UB DoctHERS Annual Symposium.

At the Jacobs School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences, UB DoctHERS is a network of female physicians, scientists, faculty, health care professionals, residents and students who address current issues in the medical and scientific fields in order to foster advancement, mentorship and equal opportunities for future generations of women in medicine and science.

This year’s event, conducted on Sept. 29 in the M&T Auditorium in the Jacobs School building, marked the network’s first in-person symposium since the emergence of COVID-19.

The event featured a keynote speech titled “Developing Women Leaders in Health Care,” delivered by Allison Brashear, MD, MBA, UB’s vice president for health sciences and dean of the Jacobs School.

Her speech was preceded by short presentations from three UB DoctHERS members who highlighted some of the work being done in the community.
