Meet Linda Eckert, M.D., Gynecology & Maternity Care Provider | UW Medicine

LINDA ECKERT: When I was working overseas, obviously, I developed this passion for taking care of people of different geographic locations and different socioeconomic and religious backgrounds So when you work at Harborview, you get a chance to see people

We have 20 interpreters in our clinic And you also get a chance to train the next generation of doctors so that they have exposure to the global health community and, hopefully, can provide a more holistic care I really thrive on the opportunity to try to react to people in bringing their own cultures with them, try to learn about their cultures, try to integrate how Western medicine works with their cultures And most of my research is in global health and global policy development So for me, it allows this whole package to fit together

I think part of who I am is the ability to take patient care and translate it into trying to do global health policy work so that women all over the globe end up with better health care
