Hello there. I am Buffy Dekmar: senior medical student and farmers market aficionado. Originally from Georgia, I have most recently studied in Vermont, Pennsylvania, and California. I previously worked as an elementary school teacher and a professional wedding/portrait photographer and am finding the culmination of these experiences in my pursuit of a career in Diagnostic Radiology.
My professional interests include: health equity, physician wellness, medical student education, and breast imaging. I believe in the necessity of community, the power of nutrition, and the fluidity of a life centered on continuous learning. The mission of this blog is to share reflections on my experiences in medical education and to foster conversation around topics in medicine, wellness, art, and education, as I follow my curiosity through the world around me. Thank you for being here.
