Dartmouth Health's CEO and president, Joanne M. Conroy, MD, will be joined in her next "Connect with the CEO" live segment on Tuesday, September 12, at 12 pm by Dartmouth's first-ever elected female president, Sian Leah Beilock, PhD, a cognitive scientist who is internationally known for her research into performance anxiety.

Dartmouth College, which will inaugurate Beilock later this month, is home to one of the oldest and most prestigious medical schools in the United States, the Geisel School of Medicine. Dartmouth Health, which enjoys a robust and vital partnership with this Ivy League institution as our academic partner, takes groundbreaking research performed at Dartmouth and translates it into cutting-edge medical breakthroughs that improve the health and lives of people around the world.

The 19th president of Dartmouth, Beilock is a critically acclaimed author whose research has been featured in a wide array of media outlets, and her 2017 TED Talk has been viewed more than 2.5 million times.

Beilock is committed to improving the culture surrounding mental health within the Dartmouth community. During their conversation, Conroy and Beilock will address a number of topics, including: Beilock's research and focus on mental health; her historic presidency at Dartmouth; their shared passion for elevating women in leadership roles; the upcoming panel discussion later this month at Dartmouth between Beilock, U.S. Surgeon General Vivek Murthy, and all six of his living predecessors on solutions to the national mental health crisis; and strengthening the historic relationship between the college and Dartmouth Health.

"I'm looking forward to my discussion with Joanne, not just as a peer, but as a partner," Beilock said. "The history between our two institutions goes back generations, and I'm excited to explore future possibilities for our collaboration."
