Dietz Draws Attention to Gender Disparities in Breast Cancer

In Partnership With:

Dr Dietz discusses her experience as a woman in surgical oncology, the importance of bridging gender disparities, and her advice to women entering the health care industry.

Welcome to OncLive On Air®! I’m your host today, Gina Mauro.

OncLive On Air® is a podcast from OncLive®, which provides oncology professionals with the resources and information they need to provide the best patient care. In both digital and print formats, OncLive® covers every angle of oncology practice, from new technology to treatment advances to important regulatory decisions.

Today, we had the pleasure of speaking with Jill Dietz, MD, the chief transformation officer and director of Breast Growth and Strategy at Allegheny Health Network, to discuss some of her experiences as a female oncologist and obstacles she has faced along the way.

In our exclusive interview, Dietz spoke in great detail about what lessons she learned in the early parts of her career, what gender inequality challenges she faced in her day-to-day role as an emerging oncologist, and things she would tell her younger self based on pieces of wisdom she knows today.
