Loading ...

A new article published in Advances in Radiation Oncology, an open access journal of the American Society for Radiation Oncology, shows radiation oncology ranks near the bottom in female representation relative to other specialties. In this podcast authors: Malika Siker MD, Curtiland Deville Jr. MD, Emma B. Holliday MD, and Nancy J. Tarbell MD, share their insights about ASTRO's Committee on Health Equity, Diversity and Inclusion (CHEDI), trends in gender representation, barriers to training, and leadership lessons and imperatives. The authors were also joined by Isabel L. Jackson PhD, Senior Editor of Advances in Radiation Oncology, to provide her perspective on Advances’ efforts to reduce disparities with regards to diversity and gender equity.
