As part of the Race & Representation (R&R) Series, we are doing spotlights on vascular trainees and faculty that identify as racial/ethnic minorities underrepresented in medicine (URiM), who have been historically excluded from the field. We hope to amplify these voices as examples of the unique challenges faced by URiMs within vascular surgery and as a source of inspiration and mentorship.
In this episode, Imani talks with Dr. Garietta Falls about her journey to vascular surgery and the lessons she learned along the way.
Dr. Falls (@drgfalls) is an assistant professor at Case Western Reserve School of Medicine and also serves as the director of the vascular lab at Metro Health in Cleveland, Ohio.
