In this episode of the Women’s Voices Amplified podcast, Shetty speaks with Women’s Leadership Council member Resa E. Lewiss MD’92 about finding the human element in medicine, her most recent work on the cutting edge of concussion treatment, and the formative role of her Brown education.

“I felt those limitless possibilities from Brown because it was such a broad education. That spirit of openness, I think, stayed with me throughout undergraduate and medical school and in my career where I continued to try to figure out: ‘How is it that I can make this better?’ Now it’s for my patients or for my concussion program, but whatever it is, what can I bring that is out of the box?”
