I recently came across an article in Axios: “As cancer mortality declines, the gap between rich and poor emerges” which highlights the disparities in cancer rates between different socioeconomic patient groups. Although there is some positive news, mainly related to lower overall cancer mortality rates over the past 25 years, there is still disheartening news […]

STEM and science-based career fields are vital for breakthroughs and advances in medicine, technology, agriculture, transportation, or just about any other facet of our lives. The sciences are the realm that produces all the new technologies and products that impact our daily lives, from vital, life-saving drugs and therapies, to the tablets and mobile devices […]
It might be “risqué” to suggest embracing the mindset of interdependence in a country famous for the highest score on the Individualism scale, (per Hofstede research); I also hope that my encouragement for the mindset of interdependence is not mistaken as a call for a commune-like set-up. Let me explain. Achievement – independent or interdependent? […]
Facebook’s latest diversity report indicates that it still isn’t hiring enough people of color, and while hiring is very important it is only the first step. The question I frequently hear is, “Now that I have hired this fantastic person, how do I keep her or him?” And if you are an employer or someone […]
O’ the beautiful game…with all its twists and turns, underdogs and upsets. The World Cup tends to be the platform for the biggest of dramas and this year did not disappoint.

Women are over 50% of the world’s population, and female economic purchasing power is growing globally (The World Bank, 2016). In the healthcare sector, women make 4 out of the 5 household purchasing decisions (Silverstein & […]

Social media feeds suggest, and polls confirm, that the country is in a moment […]
Clinical trials are the primary research method in which new drugs are tested to evaluate their effectiveness. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the U.S. authority that regulates clinical trials and bringing new drugs to the market, must balance between introducing life-saving treatments to patients who need them as soon as possible and ensuring that […]
Politics aside, people love talking about their food. If you really want to start a conversation, begin talking about food and my guess is you will not stop talking until you start eating. Long before I knew who Anthony Bourdain was, I knew the power of food to bring people together. I witnessed it in […]
I recently read an alarming and, quite frankly, shocking New York Times Article entitled “Fewer Women Run Big Companies Than Men Named John,” which indicates that fewer S&P 1500 firms have female CEOs than male CEOs named “John”. And when considering racial and ethnic diversity, the problem becomes even more acute. A 2013 survey by […]
