Every September the American Medical Association celebrates Women in Medicine Month. Different departments across the School of Medicine are partnering together to celebrate Stanford women physicians who are paving the way for other women in their field. Throughout the month of September, we will be highlighting different women faculty and trainees for their contributions to the field of ophthalmology on social media and this webpage.
