Dr. Carolyn Snider has to deal with trauma and gun violence as she runs the busiest ED in the city. She’s also a HUMANCARE volunteer. So it might surprise you to learn that she also had aspirations of singing stardom. Here’s what else she said.
When you were young, what did you want to be?
A famous singer.
What’s been the highlight of your career?
Co-leading an incredible emergency medicine team through a pandemic.
What’s your guilty viewing pleasure?
I can’t get enough of The Unexpected Star. It’s a British series on YouTube.
What living beings are you responsible for?
I have one child – no pets but a lot of squirrels wanting to eat my tulip bulbs (and probably too many dust bunnies).
Why did you volunteer to be a HUMANCARE medical co-chair?
Because I care deeply about equity in emergency department care, and I’m tired of seeing patients not have equitable health outcomes.
