Boston’s Docs Show Support for the #ILookLikeASurgeon Hashtag
The tag started trending this week.
Female surgeons are using the #ILookLikeASurgeon hashtag to challenge what people traditionally think a surgeon looks like. Similar to the #ILookLikeAnEngineer hashtag that went viral earlier this month, there are many people in the Boston community that are participating (even some men). Below, a random sampling of what your Boston surgeons really look like.
