Roxana Mehran, MD, director of interventional cardiovascular research and clinical trials at the Zena and Michael A. Weiner Cardiovascular Institute at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, discusses her new initiative called Women as One. “Women as One is a not-for-profit organization that is going to work across all of the societies. We are starting in cardiology, but it really is about promoting female talent in all of medicine. Our main mission is to recognize and understand who these women are and then to make important connections and make sure that they are mentored.” Dr. Mehran added, “We will look at early-, mid-, and late-career women to understand how we can coach them for better negotiation techniques, leadership qualities, and help them achieve the greater good that they are deserving to achieve.”
