power from identity, leading through story

A podcast on diversity and amplifying underrepresented stories and voices in medicine. It takes time to grow into our true, authentic selves, and the lessons we learn along the way add to our identities. Medical residents Harjit Kaur, Margaux Miller, and Leen Samha, together with medical students Lina Ghabayen, Hạ Lê, and Mariam Asadian, discuss the challenges of studying and practicing medicine, and how their diverse backgrounds influence their everyday lives in medical school and beyond. Through honest and thought-provoking conversations and narratives, BUNDLE OF HERS continues to grow and learn from their diverse experiences, and each other.
