Hi Friends… This is Dr. Michael Williams… and welcome to another episode of the diversify in path podcast.
This podcast explores how investing in diversity can lead to a high return of investment in pathology and laboratory medicine by learning from the knowledge and experiences of diverse voices within in our field.
My next guest is Dr. Terri L Mason .
Dr. Terri L. Mason is currently a PGY-4 Anatomical and Clinical Pathology (AP/CP) resident at the University of Louisville School of Medicine. She will be starting a year-long fellowship in surgical pathology at Oregon Health and Science University (OHSU) in Summer 2022. Her professional interests include gynecologic pathology and diversity and inclusion work. She received her medical degree from the University of Louisville School of Medicine and B.S. in Biology from Prairie View A&M University. Growing up she always had a passion for both science and human interaction. She has dedicated herself to a career in medicine in hopes of helping others heal their mind, body, and spirit. She currently serves as a member of the Graduate Medical Education (GME) Quality and Safety Subcommittee, member of the Undergraduate Medical Education (UME) Anti-Racism Task Force and co-chair of the Resident/Trainee committee for the UofL Cardinal Anti-Racism Agenda (CARA). In addition, she serves as a mentor to those interested in medicine. During medical school she was very involved in SNMA and numerous pipeline education programs. Having struggled with self-esteem/body image and mental health issues since childhood, she uses her experiences to help others and encourage dialogue to decrease stigma. In her free time she enjoys spending time with loved ones, reading, traveling, writing, and capturing the beauty of the world via photography.
