BRINGING CREATIVITY TO SCIENCE

Dr. Dawn Hershman made headlines earlier this month in an article published by OncLive.

The article details her journey into medicine, the early and difficult stages of her career, as well as the barriers and glass ceilings she broke along the way.

The award-winning oncologist and researcher shares with us the lessons she has learned over the years and what she hopes will be her legacy as a mentor.

Dr. Hershman also reminds us of the importance of having a strong support system, building personal connections with patients, and inspiring and being inspired by those around you. You can read the full article here.
