Dr. Cara King (@drcaraking) hosts surgical leader and expert Tommaso Falcone, MD, Professor of Surgery at Cleveland Clinic Lerner College of Medicine of Case Western Reserve University and Chairman of the ObGyn & Women's Health Institute at Cleveland Clinic. Dr. King also interviews women’s health advocacy expert Megan Evans, MD, MPH (@MeganEvansMD). They discuss: What it takes to be a leader and the components of leadership to build an outstanding department (serving your staff, emotional intelligence, recognizing and fostering talent, living the passion for women’s health) Identifying talent to build a successful team Recruiting leaders When a recruit does not work out Advice for making the jump to department chairperson The 3 types of mentors and their roles * * * Women’s health advocacy with Megan Evans What is happening legislatively when it comes to endometriosis? 6368/A. 484: Bill at the federal level focusing on education. Introduced in New York by State Senator Monica Martinez and State Assemblymember Linda Rosenthal. It is awaiting the Governor’s signature. Requires State Commissioner of Health to provide educational materials on endometriosis to school districts (school nurses) and clinicians throughout the state—focusing on earlier diagnosis of the condition. Which campaigns are using social media to get the word out about endometriosis? For the New York bill, the Endometriosis Foundation of America is running a campaign called #LetsTalkPeriod Social media is a powerful tool to use for contacting local and national representatives to advocate for issues Favorite social media platforms to discuss bills What bills regarding endometriosis are currently active at the national level? Res. 118 (116th Congress): Bipartisan and bicameral bill that recognizes endometriosis as an unmet disease, designates March as endometriosis awareness month, and provides funding for endometriosis research. Introduced by Senator Tammy Duckworth and Congressman David Scott. Other bills that include endometriosis (but are not specific to the condition) include a House bill introduced by Congresswoman Carolyn Maloney (HR 3865). It amends the public Health Service Act, which aims to reduce the amount of chemicals included in feminine hygiene products and investigate the link to included chemicals and female cancers, infertility, and endometriosis. Another bill has been introduced and hopes to ensure contraception access (HR 2182 /S 1086), which is essential to women with endometriosis, as hormonal contraception is important as a treatment option for endometriosis symptoms. A final bill also is in the introductory stages (S 1461 /H 2803), and it aims to require insurance coverage for infertility treatments. * * * Suggested reading The Serving Leader: Five Powerful Actions to Transform Your Team, Business, and Community by Kenneth R.

Dr. Cara King (@drcaraking) hosts surgical expert Ted Teh Min Lee, MD, Clinical Professor of Gynecology and Reproductive Sciences and Director of Minimally Invasive Gynecologic Surgery at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center Magee Womens Hospital. Dr. King also interviews women’s health advocacy expert Megan Evans, MD, MPH (@MeganEvansMD). They discuss: Lee’s challenges in moving to the United States from Taiwan at a young age and his career path Cultivating extracurricular activities, such as fly fishing Video’s importance in surgical education Prioritizing learning and learning style Lee’s break into gynecologic surgery with C.Y. Liu, MD The challenges of subspecializing in MIGS in ObGyn Tips for new graduates who are building a surgical practice Case selection and specialized back-up in the OR Taking appropriate risk during surgery * * * Women’s health advocacy with Megan Evans How does a bill become a law? Step 1: A bill is born Anyone may draft a bill; however, only members of Congress can introduce legislation, and, by doing so, become the sponsor(s). The president, a member of the cabinet or the head of a federal agency can also propose legislation, although a member of Congress must introduce it. Step 2: Committee action As soon as a bill is introduced, it is referred to a committee. At this point the bill is examined carefully and its chances for passage are first determined. If the committee does not act on a bill, the bill is effectively “dead.” Step 3: Subcommittee review Often, bills are referred to a subcommittee for study and hearings. Hearings provide the opportunity to put on the record the views of the executive branch, experts, other public officials and supporters, and opponents of the legislation. Step 4: Mark up When the hearings are completed, the subcommittee may meet to “mark up” the bill; that is, make changes and amendments prior to recommending the bill to the full committee. If a subcommittee votes not to report legislation to the full committee, the bill dies. If the committee votes for the bill, it is sent to the floor. Step 5: Committee action to report a bill After receiving a subcommittee's report on a bill the full committee votes on its recommendation to the House or Senate. This procedure is called “ordering a bill reported.” Step 6: Voting After the debate and the approval of any amendments, the bill is passed or defeated by the members voting. Step 7: Referral to other chamber When the House or Senate passes a bill, it is referred to the other chamber, where it usually follows the same route through committee and floor action. This chamber may approve the bill as received, reject it, ignore it, or change it. Step 8: Conference committee action When the actions of the other chamber significantly alter the bill, a conference committee is formed to reconcile the differences between the House and Senate versions. If the conferees are unable to reach agreement, the legislation dies. If agreement is reached, a conference report is prepared describing the committee members’ recommendations for changes. Both the House and Senate must approve the conference report. Step 9: Final action After both the House and Senate have approved a bill in identical form, it is sent to the president. If the president approves of the legislation, he signs it and it becomes law. Or, if the president takes no action for 10 days, while Congress is in session, it automatically becomes law. If the president opposes the bill he can veto it; or if he takes no action after the Congress has adjourned its second session, it is a “pocket veto” and the legislation dies. Step 10: Overriding a veto If the president vetoes a bill, Congress may attempt to “override the veto.” If both the Senate and the House pass the bill by a two-thirds majority, the president’s veto is overruled and the bill becomes a law.
