Noteworthy Publication: 

In the June 2023 issue of Academic Medicine, Dr. Linda Chaudron from Maine Medical Center and colleagues published a new commentary on Power Reimagined: Advancing Women Into Emerging Leadership Positions. The article addresses the gender gap that exists among leaders in academic health centers and throughout health care and higher education. The authors call for identifying emerging leadership roles, dismantling systemic barriers, and preparing more women with the knowledge, skills, and experience required of top leaders.
