We wanted to take the opportunity in this newsletter to acknowledge the outstanding achievements of our members. Below are some notable achievements of our membership. It is not exhaustive, and all members are encouraged to inform the CSA of achievements over the year so they can be shared with our surgical community.
Anees Chagpar, MD, MSc, MPH, MA
New Haven, CT
Dr. Chagpar won a Giambalvo award to create a virtual Negotiations course for women to try to get at gender equity in the workplace. Capped at 100 people, they had over 3.8k applicants in less than a week! The courses were a huge success with participants stating that afterwards they had more confidence, and were able to negotiate with their Chairs for what they wanted and to grow the pie. She has now made a sustainable virtual negotiations course to offer this to more people. Learn more about the course here. Read the press release and another relevant article about the grant.
