DM3P: Who We Are, Where We’ve Been, Where We’re Going

10/18/23-5:30 pm - 7:00 pm PDT

DM3P: Who We Are, Where We’ve Been, Where We’re Going

Please join us for an evening of reflection on where the DM3P community stands today. The executive leadership will share information about DM3P’s philosophy, past achievements, current projects, and future plans. Additionally, the community will have an opportunity to provide feedback on DM3P’s initiatives. We are excited to engage in dialog with the community and share what the executive leadership has planned to support each of your journeys as healthcare professionals with disability/allies.


Speaker Bios:

Suchita Rastogi:  Suchita Rastogi is a clinical phase MD/PhD student at Stanford University and an MPH student at the University of Illinois at Chicago. She has 10 years of experience in medical and science education. Her lived experience navigating college, graduate school, and medical school with multiple chronic illnesses inspired her to advocate for her medical school classmates with disabilities, pivot into disability scholarship, and join the SMADIE Board of Directors. In 2021, she co-founded the Disability in Medicine Mutual Mentorship Program (DM3P) to provide mentorship and community for disabled clinicians and trainees and serves as its Executive Director. Running DM3P has and continues to be her most meaningful accomplishment.

Zoey Martin-Lockhart: Zoey is a PhD Candidate in cultural anthropology and an MS Epidemiology student at the University of Illinois at Chicago. Her dissertation explores the advocacy, educational, and community-building work of disabled medical students and doctors who are pushing for greater disability inclusivity in biomedicine. This ethnographic research is multi-sited across social and digital media (e.g. Twitter and #MedTwitter, podcasts, and video or voice conferencing) and the physical world, and thus inquiries into the nexus of online and offline medical culture and knowledge production. She is the curator and co-host of the Research and Resource Rounds Podcast from the Docs With Disabilities Initiative. Previously, Zoey lived and did research in India, looking at mental health among queer communities there—in part thanks to a Fulbright-Nehru Student Research grant. You can follow Zoey on Twitter and Mastodon @Zoey_beta, on IG @Zoey__beta (because she is always a “beta” version of herself, a work in progress).
