Keynote Speaker: Shieva Ghofrany, MD

Shieva Ghofrany, MD FACOG has been in private practice since 2003 at Coastal Obstetrics & Gynecology in Stamford.

 

Her coursework helped immensely when she was diagnosed in June 2016 with ovarian cancer and her newfound complementary knowledge improved her mechanisms of coping with her extensive surgical complications and 18 weeks of chemotherapy. Her cancer had arisen in the setting of her long history of endometriosis and her early detection at stage 2 helped solidify her belief that if women and doctors work together, we can STOP erroneously labelling ovarian cancer “the silent killer”.

 

Since February 2019, she has grown her social media presence (largely on Instagram) so that she can chat openly about “all things female”, focusing mostly on “increasing women’s knowledge to help decrease their anxiety” from 200 followers to almost 35K followers as of April 2022.​

2023 Honoree: Seema Bakrhu, MD

Seema Bakrhu, MD is a radiologist, focusing on body and breast imaging.

In 2022, she was named the Chair of the Department of Radiology at Danbury Hospital and Norwalk Hospital, member hospitals of Nuvance Health. She is the first female to hold this position in the two hospitals’ history.
