    Dr. Kim Curseen is an empowering and inspirational  leader in geriatrics and palliative care. Dr. Curseen feels that people, especially women, can be steered down that path that they are  asked to do things. As they want to be helpful, they may just step in to fill an organizational need  without ever really stopping back just consider, “Is this the way I really want my career to go?”  Sadly, they may wake up many years later filled with regret at their career trajectory and unable to take corrective action.  Join us to hear the fireworks in Dr. Curseen's views in this episode of  Stanford Medicine's #HealthcareLeadershipPodcast.
