IN THE NEWS: CNN Highlights Image of Ross Alumna and Female Surgeon Peers

April 12, 2017

Ross alumna Laura Edwards, MD, is completing a general surgery residency at Hennepin County Medical Center in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Dr. Edwards, along with female colleagues in the program and their attending, were inspired by the recent New Yorker cover that brings a heightened awareness of female surgeons around the globe. To give homage to the recent illustration, Dr. Edwards and her peers offered their real life rendition to CNN - and it was featured by the network.
