Mom of 3 runs ophthalmology practice, empowers other women to be doctors

 

Rupa Wong, MD, an opthalmologist who operates a private practice in Honolulu, has launched a community to empower women in medicine while raising three kids with her husband, according to a profile by People.

Dr. Wong also is a surgeon at Honolulu Eye Clinic, where she works with her husband, Jeffery Wong, MD, according to the practice's website. The couple  moved to Hawaii in 2008 and bought the practice, according to the profile.

Since then, Dr. Rupa Wong started a community called the Attending Lounge aimed at empowering women medical students and pre-meds, according to the profile. She also runs a clothing line, Aryana, for women and children.

She told People that balancing family and work boils down to deciding how to spend her time and energy.

"It's crazy to think that you can accomplish everything all at one time," Dr. Wong said in the profile. "There are times when work will take priority. And then there are times when family life will take priority."
