Building a Personal Brand: an OWC Career Development Roundtable

April 25, 2017 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

What is a personal brand? Why is it important for you? How do you create a personal brand? Once you’ve created a personal brand, how do you market it?

Today, even academic physicians are required to be more entrepreneurial and have a personal impact. That’s why personal branding has become a critical element of every physician leader’s skill set. Join us in an interactive discussion, led by Dr. D. Punyanganie De Silva, regarding this topic.

This program for women faculty is sponsored by the BWH Office for Women’s Careers.

D. Punyanganie De Silva, MBBS, MPH, MRCP (UK),  is a gastroenterologist specializing in the care of patients with inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD). In addition, she has a strong interest in the clinical care and study of pregnancy and women’s health in IBD and the transition of IBD patients from pediatric to adult care. Her main research interests investigate the role of the environment and diet in the natural history and treatment of IBD. Dr. de Silva’s project investigating the role of dietary fatty acids in IBD was funded by a career development award from the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation of America. She currently serves as the Director for Nutrition in IBD at the Crohn’s and Colitis Center at BWH. She has authored articles for Gastroenterology, The European Journal of Gastroenterology & Hepatology, and other peer-reviewed journals.
