Most of all, I appreciate your ongoing friendship, mentorship, and sponsorship. Your support and partnership are very much appreciated.
Please do not hesitate to reach out to me for speaker invitations, as our fields continue to blossom in patient care, research, and education related to Cardiology, Cardio-Oncology, and especially Preventive Cardio-Oncology, and the role that these play in Heart Disease in Women, Precision Cardiovascular Medicine, Innovation, Digital Health, and Social Media. I enjoy talking about these topic areas and entrepreneurship, and I am always happy to give grand rounds.

WHY MEDICAL COLLEGE OF WISCONSIN
MCW has been a good fit for Dr. Brown's strengths, skills, and career goals. For more than a decade, Dr. Brown has been pursuing and developing a career in the prevention of cardiovascular disease, particularly in individuals with a current or prior history of cancer, especially in women. That includes primordial, primary, secondary, and tertiary prevention in Cardio-Oncology. A career that integrates patient care, research, education, mentorship, program building, administration, and innovation. Dr. Brown has been blessed that MCW has shared a similar vision for the potential Cardio-Oncology has to impact our local, national, and global community. A vision which involves mutual growth, knowledge-sharing, and building great initiatives!
MCW has been the largest private research institution in Wisconsin, and the 2nd largest NIH-funded institution in the state. The institution has been among the top 1/3 of all US medical schools in NIH research support. MCW has been the 3rd largest private medical school in the USA, providing excellent training for numerous medical students, residents, and fellows. The medical school and partner hospitals boast a high percentage of strong women partners and leaders. MCW has had a tradition of hosting national society leaders, such as past presidents and board directors of the American Heart Association, American Society for Hematology, Society for Academic Emergency Medicine, and American Association of Medical Colleges.
According to the Milwaukee Magazine, missionaries, mapmakers, newspaper printers, and many other townspeople attempted to write down the name of the city based on native tribe dialects. Steeped in mystery and debate, the current spelling has prevailed, and appears to mean “good land”, “rich and beautiful land”, or “gather place by the waters”. We are personal fans of all of these options.
From the way we see it, Dr. Brown joined an esteemed practice in patient care, research, education, and community engagement in a good, rich, and beautiful land of Milwaukee residents; where folks from all around the city, state, nation, and world would gather by Lake Michigan; together blazing trails forward into the future frontiers of Prevention, Precision, Digital Health, and Innovation in Cardio-Oncology. No stone would be left unturned while tilling the soil that would bear fruit for decades and even centuries to come.
According to Wikipedia, Milwaukee is the birthplace or hometown of a myriad of nationally and internationally renowned actors, filmmakers, producers, singers, musicians, writers, poets, artists, fashion designers, athletes, olympians, lawyers, judges, legislators, diplomats, doctors, innovators, race car drivers, astronauts, architects, ministers, and other people of honor and valor. Milwaukee was also home to Oprah Winfrey.
Milwaukee is the biggest city in Wisconsin and the 5th biggest city in the Midwest USA. The city sits on the shore of Lake Michigan, and lends itself to sailing, windsurfing, and kitesurfing. The city is known for museums, art, music, and cultural festivals and dining, and was voted by Vogue as “The Coolest City in the Midwest” in 2018.
ONGOING NATIONAL & GLOBAL COLLABORATIONS
Milwaukee is very close to the up-and-coming innovation city of Chicago, about an hour and a half by car. In addition to close collaborations in Chicago, nationwide and worldwide collaborations will continue to be nurtured, as so much more can be done linked arm-in-arm.
