I’m a practicing gynecologist, the Vice-Chair of Academics and the director of the Fellowship in Family Planning at Boston Medical Center, and an associate professor of OB/GYN at the Boston University School of Medicine.
Officially, my job is to oversee the education of fellows, residents and students in OB/GYN, to run the BEACON family planning research unit, to write grant proposals, and to provide excellent clinical care.
But really? I teach women how to better understand their bodies. I help women be unafraid of seeing the doctor, and to arm them with questions to ask. I empower women with the information they need to make the best choices for themselves and their lives. I speak English, not Doctor.
