This AWAEM Anniversary Interview features Dr. Esther Choo, who is well known for her leadership in social media advocacy and as founder of TimesUp Health Care and Equity Quotient. She speaks about her day job as an associate professor and NIH-funded researcher at the Oregon Health and Science University, and how pivotal AWAEM mentors and networks were in her own academic career. She and Dr. Lin talk about the contrast between the vision of true gender equity and much of the work happening now—which is critical work, but only “just pouring the cement.” Read the interview highlights here.
