Duke study finds women less likely to enter radiology careers

Even with more women in STEM, one department is missing out.  Sarah Cater, a resident in Duke University's radiology program, authored a study on the global gender disparity within the radiology field.

Duke's radiology department is making strides to improve this gender disparity.

Staff Writer Ryan Smoot asked Williams about how he is trying to change perceptions of programming.
