Dr. Stephanie Brister: Queen of Hearts

February 10, 2008

For Kickstart, we interviewed business magnate and philanthropist Peter Munk, as well as the head of cardiovascular surgery at his cardiac centre at the University Health Network in Toronto. Looks like we should have also talked to Dr. Stephanie Brister, the only female surgeon at the centre. We highly recommend Dave McGinn’s profile of Dr. Brister, which appeared in today’s Globe and Mail. You’ll also find a cool little doc the Globe team put together.

Too bad we didn’t find her first. Hopefully, Brister’s story will inspire young women to follow in her footsteps in what is still a largely male-dominated field.
