Meet Dr. Carol Shields – A trailblazer on a mission to wipe out eye cancer

Modern Hero is a new series that celebrates incredible women who are defying the odds, shattering glass ceilings, and making a difference in their careers and in the world. They are educators, businesswomen, nonprofit leaders, media personalities, and everyone in between, proving that role models come from all walks of life. The series takes an interactive approach by having the audience AND the women featured nominate their Modern Heroes, many of whom are then interviewed by journalist, Julia Fisher Farbman. The goal is to inspire young girls and women to dream big and not let gender norms hold them back from success.
