Landry’s career highlighted in Quarterly Magazine

Tags: Mary Landry

Mary Landry, MD, is featured in the Spring 2020 volume of Quarterly, the UW SMPH alumni magazine!

The article focuses on Landry’s commitment to high-quality medical education at all levels, and her dedication to addressing health disparities in Dane County and beyond:

“Some of the most meaningful moments of Landry’s career have been at the intersection of mentoring and health disparities. For instance, in 2013, when OB/GYN resident Katherine O’Rourke, MD (PG ’16), asked her where uninsured women in Dane County could go for gynecologic care that could help prevent cancer, Landry realized there was no such place…

…With this in mind, Landry and O’Rourke co-founded Share the Health, a referralbased nonprofit clinic that aims to improve the health of underserved women in need of gynecologic specialty care in Dane County. Run by volunteers—including physicians, residents, medical students, undergraduates and community friends—the clinic provides procedures directed at preventing and diagnosing gynecologic cancer, and it serves as an excellent learning opportunity for volunteer medical trainees who work there.”
