Featuring Cheryl Pritlove and Elizabeth Metraux

This week, we have two amazing guests, Cheryl Pritlove and Elizabeth Metraux. They are joining us to talk about gender disparities in medicine. Cheryl Pritlove is a Research Scientist at the Applied Health Research Centre at the Li Ka Shing Knowledge Institute of St. Michael’s Hospital in Ontario, Canada. She is a qualitative methodologist and health equity researcher with specific interests in gender disparities. Please read her recent Lancet article The good, the bad, and the ugly of implicit bias that we discuss on the show.

Elizabeth Metraux is the founder of the Boston-based start-up, Women Writers in Medicine, with a mission to break glass ceilings using the power of the pen. Formerly at the National Institutes of Health, she worked in the Office of the NIH Director as communications lead for Workforce Diversity. Prior to jumping into healthcare, she served in the Middle East and Central Asia in civil society development through the State Department, USAID, and a number of local NGO’s and media outlets. Elizabeth’s work has appeared in The New England Journal of Medicine, Health Affairs, STAT, Medium, and more. She regularly speaks across the country, hosts the healthcare podcast “Relational Rounds,” and the live storytelling series, “Scrubs, Spirits, and Stories: Tales from the Trenches of Healthcare,” both sponsored by Primary Care Progress.
