Dr. Mahalingaiah illustrates the multilingual challenges of working with medical patients, relying on interpreters, often by phone, to convey body sensations, physical symptoms, and choices about medical procedures within intercultural contexts. Her journey as an Indian-born American, a Watson Fellow studying indigenous healing in Ecuador and Bali, and her medical career at Harvard and Boston Universities inform the presentation.
Shruthi was born in India and immigrated to Connecticut with her family. She is a graduate of Middlebury College and Harvard Medical School and joined the faculty at Boston University School of Medicine, where she is an Assistant Professor of Obstetrics and Gynecology and board certified in Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility.
