Dr. Marian Mitchell, BE19 Attendee

I took what felt like a huge leap at the time for a relatively new attending with two little boys (and one “cooking”). I booked a ticket to go to a conference where I knew no one, in a place I’d never been, with a roommate I’d meet upon arrival. What happened that fall in 2019 was a turning point in my whole life. I began to believe again that I could stand up for myself.  I learned it was ok to have fun. I met so many other women balancing doctoring and motherhood and learned that I could find fulfillment in both. I learned that medicine didn’t need to be “all of me.” I learned to ask for help. I came home and knew that I would forever find time for myself where I hadn’t before.

Dr. Komal Patil-Sisodia, BE19 Attendee

Three and a half years ago, I was starting to realize I was burned out. I’m still trying to process the magic that happened during BE. The conference inspired me to start thinking about what I wanted to do with my career trajectory and to work on a passion project. My husband told me after the first conference: “I don’t know what happened this last weekend, but I see your light coming back. You need to go every year.
