Dr. Ross Speaks Out to Empower Female Surgeons
Dr. Ross attended the Women Surgery Initiative and Annual Women in Surgery Conference to speak with other females who are thinking about becoming surgeons. She and many other prominent surgeons shifted the focus of these discussions to encourage women.
The efforts are meant to cultivate women’s pride and confidence. Dr. Ross believes in enabling women to realize that all women can pursue their dreams, whether personal or in a professional capacity. To date, the conference has been extraordinary at providing the resources for these women.
