Saturday Morning Rounds
A weekly round-up of everything that captured our attention over the last 7 days.
What we're reading
This week's newsletter will be a bit different from what you're used to.
See, we recently had the joy of getting to know Dr. Kemi Doll, MD, MS. She's a:
What's more, she's created an already-great and continually growing library of content on lifestyle design & career management that everyone should know about.
And given that it's currently Black History Month in the states, it's only natural that we would take this opportunity to celebrate her and her work, and make sure that a few more people know about it. So let's dig in!
In this week's "what we're reading" section, we're going to highlight Dr. Doll's newsletter. Here's a sample in which she breaks down the 3 career roles we all need to integrate into our professional identities and split our time between:
The newsletter is concise and impactful, so rather than give away the punch line of how you can improve your orientation toward those 3 roles, we'll encourage you to take a couple minutes and go straight to the source!
Who we're following
Obviously we're following Dr. Kemi Doll (@KemiDoll)!
What might not be so obvious, however, is that Dr. Doll's Twitter feed is how we first found out about her. See, her writing talents aren't limited to grants and newsletters - she seems to have mastered the art of the Twitter thread as well.
When we saw that thread, we knew we just had to (a) click follow and (b) DM her to learn about what she's up to.
Can't recommend strongly enough that y'all do the same.
BBMD tip of the week

Quote we're contemplating
Correction - Last week we highlighted Dr. Mary O'Connor, MD (@MaryOConnorMD), and stated that she was the first female president of AAOS. She actually wrote an article celebrating the first female AAOS president, Dr. Kristy Weber, MD. Thank you to the reader who pointed this out for us.
