Today on Extraordinary Women Radio, I’m excited to introduce you to Dr. Bilha Chesner Fish, an Israeli American immigrant and distinguished radiologist, journeyed from Israel to medical school in Italy, to New York City’s most esteemed hospitals, and to Long Island, where she founded Manhasset Diagnostic Imaging and Pathways Women’s Health.
Her book, Invincible Women: Conversations with 21 Inspiring and Successful American Immigrants tells the first-person success stories told by American writers, artists, philanthropists, scientists, business executives, and chefs—all immigrants who struggled against racism, sexism, and abuse to become influencers and role models in their adopted country, America.
In this Episode:
- The story of her own struggle as an immigrant in the United States
- What prompted Bilha to open up her women center and give back to the community
- What inspired Bilha to write her book Invincible Women
- The wonderful story behind meeting these 21 lovely women she featured in her book Invincible Women
- Her perspective and gratitude towards the country of the United States and how it’s a place of opportunity for her and for others
- The voice and legacy Bilha wants the world to hear from her
Dr. Fish is a longtime advocate for community service and women’s empowerment, and is committed to stand up to hate, racism, and fear born of misinformation. I can’t think of a more important time to share her story and the stories of the 21 women featured in her book Invincible Women. I hope you’ll join me in jumping out and grabbing a copy of her book.
