Last month, Encompass Health Richardson’s Diversity and Inclusion committee invited Dr. Tate, our new medical director, to speak on Women’s History/Gender Equality Month, which was in March. She spoke about her journey navigating through medicine as a black woman raised in a small town in Mississippi. She highlighted the struggles of setting herself apart as a woman with big aspirations, balancing family-work life, entering into medical school during Hurricane Katrina, finding a mentor that underwent similar experiences as her own and so much more! We were pleased to host this event.
