Thea James is vice president of mission and associate chief medical officer at Boston Medical Center. An emergency medicine physician by training, she did her internship and residency at BU School of Medicine. It was also as a BU medical trainee that she finally felt comfortable coming out as a lesbian. And she’s never looked back. “Being here . . . has supported me and encouraged me to question, to push back, to explore, and to build things.”
