The University of Vermont highlighted ISTH leaders Paula Tracy and Mary Cusham for their high profile roles with the ISTH and the American Heart Association. Tracy, an ISTH Council member, and Cushman, an Associate Editor for the Journal of Thrombosis and Haemostasis, serve as professors at the University of Vermont College of Medicine.
In the article, Tracy commented that she was particularly proud to be encouraging other women to become more involved within the ISTH.
“It’s getting them to take center stage, take leadership roles in the meeting to chair a session, for example,” she said. “Just little things, but they’re really important for them to build their self-esteem and demonstrate their competence.”
