About the Speaker
Kathryn Reed, MD, graduated from the University Of Arizona College Of Medicine in 1977, and completed both her residency in Obstetrics and Gynecology and fellowship in Maternal-Fetal Medicine at the UA.  Dr. Reed was head of the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology from 2004-2018.  She is currently Professor and Director of the Maternal-Fetal Medicine Fellowship Program.  She was chosen College of Medicine Alumna of the Year in 2017. Dr. Reed is known internationally for her work in fetal cardiac physiology, and co-authored 2 widely-read books on Fetal Echocardiography.  Her work on the advancement of women in academic medicine with Anne Wright, PhD, and other faculty and administrators (the GRACE Project: Generating Respect for All in a Climate of academic Excellence), resulted in increases in salaries, promotions and leadership for women faculty.  She has served as a member of the Maternal-Fetal Medicine Division of the American Board of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, the Board of Directors of the Society for Maternal-Fetal Medicine, and the Board of Governors of the American Institute of Ultrasound in Medicine. Having recently rediscovered an interest in philosophy (BA, Pomona College), she is currently exploring the intersection between Behavioral Economics, health, and leadership, and the potential impact of this understanding on both health behavior and the development of more intelligent organizations.
