Podcast

In Partnership With:

Drs Garg, Outlaw-Evans, and Farrington discuss their experiences as women in oncology, changes they have observed in the culture of medicine, and their advice to young women entering the field.

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 3 female oncologists at Cancer Treatment Centers of America (CTCA): Laura Farrington, DO, a medical oncologist at CTCA Chicago; Elesyia Outlaw-Evans, MD, a radiation oncologist at CTCA Pheonix; and Ruchi Garg, MD, CTCA Program Director of Gynecologic Oncology and gynecologic oncologist at CTCA Atlanta.

The 3 experts sat down to be candid and discuss their variety of experiences throughout their career, what the culture of their work environments were like, the obstacles they came into contact with and how they overcame them, and how society has changed from their early days until now.

Notably, in this exclusive interview, they highlight advice to up-and-upcoming female oncologists on navigating these waters today.
