about this series

conversations with shem

Conversations are taking place, with medical literature icon Samuel Shem of “The House of God” fame at their helm, as we search for answers on how to put the human back into healthcare.

it started with a chance encounter

origins

Shem and I linked up in late 2020, in the midst of a pandemic. We were connected through a mutual contact, in that magical way social media has for bringing people together who would not have otherwise met. We instantaneously clicked, unified by the healthcare field we had dabbled in and our love of the arts. Yada, yada, yada, several vent sessions later, we had ourselves a plan. We would join forces on the project, and use each of our talents to spread the word.

That’s how Conversations with Shem was born.

The Guests

Each episode brings together an eclectic group of accomplished physicians. We simply bring them on, tell them the topic, and let personalities get to work. Our goal: an open-ended discussion on how to put the HUMAN back into healthcare.

Dr. Hala Sabry

panelist

Dr. Hala Sabry is a Board-Certified Emergency Medicine physician, the founder of Physician Moms Group (PMG).  Prior to PMG, she frequently fought through fear, negative self-talk, and a recurring desire to quit her job in medicine but she realized that other physicians must have experienced the same struggles. Hala has since expanded her outreach to coaching other women in male-dominated fields to help them excel at their goals.  She believes that as a community leader, she has a responsibility to forge a path for other women and the future generations to come.
