On this episode, medical student Hank Davis, and the Director of Narrative Medicine, Michael Vitez sit down with Dr. Oneida Arosarena.
She is an otolaryngologist at Temple and Associate Dean of Diversity and Inclusion. We asked her all about what the last year has been like for her, both as a surgeon and physician working during the pandemic, and in her role as Associate Dean for Diversity and Inclusion at a time when the pandemic has shown so clearly the inequality in our city and country.
Dr. Arosarena is a graduate of Johns Hopkins for her undergraduate and medical degrees. She did her residency at University of Michigan in otolaryngology, and a fellowship at the University of New York Upstate in facial plastic, reconstructive, and craniofacial surgery.
In our conversation, she told us about what excites her most these days working at Temple and shared a wonderful story about a patient she will long remember.
