During this special Zoom event, hosted by the FSMB Foundation, New York Times reporter and author Megan Twohey will discuss sexual misconduct in the workplace and the book she wrote with Jodi Kantor titled "She Said: Breaking the Sexual Harassment Story That Helped Ignite a Movement." The book takes readers behind the scenes of the 2017 investigation of Harvey Weinstein, which helped define the #MeToo era and trigger the global reckoning on sexual misconduct. The FSMB's  House of Delegates recently adopted a new policy addressing physician sexual misconduct, making Ms. Twohey’s presentation particularly timely.

After her presentation, Ms. Twohey will engage in a discussion with FSMB CEO and President Humayun J. Chaudhry, DO, MACP, and will also answer questions from the viewing audience. 

Ms. Twohey's presentation is a special fundraiser for the FSMB Foundation, which offers grants and other initiatives to strengthen the quality of health care through effective medical regulation. Your donation will help the Foundation continue to grow! 

(Note: Continuing Medical Education (CME) credit will not be available for this event.) 

About Ms. Twohey
Megan Twohey is a Pulitzer Prize-winning investigative reporter for The New York Times and co-author of the bestselling book “SHE SAID: Breaking the Sexual Harassment Story That Helped Ignite a Movement.” The investigation shared in the 2018 Pulitzer Prize for Public Service as well as the George Polk award for national reporting, and won many other prizes.

Twohey has focused much of her reporting on the treatment of women and children. In 2016, she told the stories of women who accused Donald J. Trump of groping and other sexual misconduct. She uncovered an underground network where parents gave away adopted children they no longer wanted to strangers met on the Internet in a practice known as re-homing. The series, “The Child Exchange,” showed how this dangerous black market took place with no government oversight and at great risk to children, and was a finalist for the 2014 Pulitzer Prize for Investigative Reporting.

Twohey also was one of the first journalists to expose how police and prosecutors were shelving DNA evidence collected after sex crimes, robbing victims of the chance for justice. In response to her stories, Illinois passed the first state law mandating the testing of every rape kit. Ms. Twohey has also written investigative reports for Reuters, the Chicago Tribune and the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. She graduated from Georgetown University in 1998.
