2018 Presentation

Expanding Leadership Horizons

Panelists for this event were women leaders from a historically hierarchical and male-dominated discipline, perioperative medicine, which is defined as the care of patients before, during and after surgery. The panelists reflected on their paths to leadership and how they expanded their own leadership horizons, obstacles they faced and overcame on their paths to leadership and pearls of wisdom for aspiring leaders.

Panelists included Leigh Neumayer, MD, MS, a long-time professor of Surgery and Trauma and burn surgeon at the University of Utah, and now chair of surgery and interim senior vice president at the University of Arizona; Kathy Adamson, MBA, RN, administrative director of Perioperative and Trauma Service at the University of Utah; Renee Navarro, PharmD, MD, professor of anesthesia and perioperative care and vice chancellor of diversity and outreach at the University of California, San Francisco; and Keneeshia Williams, MD, assistant professor of surgery at Emory University, who recently completed her surgical critical care/acute care surgery fellowship at the University of Arizona.
