Teaching and Mentoring

One of the best parts of my job is working with curious, engaged, and passionate trainees.

In my earliest years as an instructor, I taught Introduction to Women’s Studies at Emory University, where I won a Deans’ Graduate Student Teaching Award. At Columbia University, I taught Qualitative Data Analysis and was given the the Early Career Teaching Award from the university’s Mailman School of Public Health.

At the University of Wisconsin-Madison, I used to teach what we believe is the largest class on women, gender, and health in the country (GWS 103). You can check out the syllabus here: GWS 103 Fall 2017 syllabus. The course was created by amazing women over 40 years ago, and I was honored to help keep the 103 tradition thriving. My GWS 103 colleagues were also early adopters of online learning, offering a new-and-improved online version of the course. I have also taught an upper-level undergraduate course on public health, reproduction, and sexuality (GWS 533/GWS 534) and a graduate course on Gender and Health (GWS 950). In 2015, I won UW-Madison’s Emil Steiger Teaching Award.

While I no longer teach undergraduates, I delight in working with a variety of trainees in the Obstetrics and Gynecology Department and across campus, including those in our amazing CORE Lab.

I also provide education in the form of talks and webinars, which I give frequently. Here’s an example from a recent Grand Rounds presentation in the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at UW-Madison. My brief section of the webinar begins at 29:57.
