Meet the Co-Chair

Kimberly Greene-Liebowitz, MD, MPH is a board-certified emergency physician who has worked in hospitals and urgent care centers throughout metropolitan New York. In the past few years, she has segued to writing, editing and advocacy. She earned her medical degree at Temple University School of Medicine and completed her training at Long Island Jewish Medical Center. Prior to her career in clinical medicine, Greene-Liebowitz earned a Master of Public Health in epidemiology at The George Washington University and a Bachelor of Arts in biology/biochemistry at Cornell University. She has worked with major healthcare consulting, pharmaceutical and public health organizations, which has given her a broad view of healthcare and the ability to see how its facets interconnect. She is a critical thinker and consults original sources and research to inform her decisions.

Greene-Liebowitz is the co-editor of What We Bring to the Practice of Medicine: Perspectives from Women Physicians (April 2023), and is the author of the introduction and several essays within the book. She authored a chapter in The Hidden Epidemic: Confronting Sexually Transmitted Diseases. Her work has been published on multiple local and national websites. Currently, she is working on a kosher, gluten-free cookbook and two fictional novels (middle grade and adult).

Meet the Co-Chair

Debra Blaine, MD, CMT is a physician turned full-time writer. She’s penned multiple award-winning novels, coached authors (and burned-out docs) as a Certified Master Trainer Coach, and has found her joy as a freelance writer for pets. Learning to self-publish was a turning point in her writing career.

After 33 years of medical practice, she understands what it takes to shift the needle and forge a whole new identity. She’s always happy to talk to novelists and disenchanted physicians. Life is too short to slog away in misery 8 – 12 hours a day.

Meet the Organizer

Dana Corriel, MD A board-certified internist who decided to shift gears mid-career to become a digital healthcare expert and entrepreneur. Dr. Corriel founded SoMeDocs – the site you’re on this very moment – to empower doctors, and promote their autonomy, by helping them build accounts online that help establish their authority as the experts in health. Dr. Corriel now works as a freelance consultant to both professionals and large companies, strategizing on growth and building unique digital content and pathways for businesses and brands that want to stand out.
