In celebration of Women’s History Month this past March, UVA Comprehensive Cancer Center staff nominated their colleagues for the Phenomenal Women Award. Among those selected was Associate Professor of Surgery and General Surgery Division Chief, Traci Hedrick, MD, MSc. Colleagues described Dr. Hedrick as “patient, kind, thoughtful, and a strong leader. She speaks up for equity in conferences and other public settings and actively works to improve gender equality in our field. Her commitment to mentoring and supporting junior faculty, residents, and medical students has made a significant impact on the future of women in oncology.” Thank you Dr. Hedrick for all that you do to make UVA a more inclusive and excellent workplace!
