    Dr. Gwen Lopez-Cohen on empowered women supporting other women

    Dr. Gwen Lopez-Cohen on empowered women supporting other women

    The Warrior Queen Podcast kicks off its second season with an interview between founder Swati Bhise and Dr. Gwen Lopez-Cohen, a Warrior Queen dedicated to her community, medical career, and family. Dr. Lopez-Cohen has extensive experience in her field: she trained at the NYU School of Medicine with honors in physiology and neuroscience, completed an advanced residency in community psychiatry at the Yale Child Study Center and the Connecticut Mental Health Center, and opened a private practice in Westport, CT in 2012. 

    Self-assured, hardworking, and dedicated to making the world a better place, Dr. Lopez-Cohen credits much of her success to the support she has received from other empowered women: her advisor at Barnard who advocated for her teaching job at the Brearley School, positive influences from her peers in pursuing the medical profession, and other career-oriented mothers who have given her invaluable guidance in juggling family responsibilities and professional ambitions. 

    Dr. Lopez-Cohen discusses her sister’s passing as a catalyst for her pivot to the medical field. She then continues with a conversation with Swati about the nuances of distributing child rearing responsibilities in a nuclear family. Dr. Gwen Lopez Cohen and Swati finish by discussing how to pay it forward to the next generation through mentorship and insight into addressing the mental health challenges of our time.
