Bismarck's Dr. Agnieszka Solberg Empowers Other Women

Zach Zeis

Empowered women empower women. Dr. Agnieszka Solberg embodies this ethic in her work as an interventional radiologist at Bismarck’s CHI St. Alexius hospital. Interventional radiology is a highly specialized field where doctors offer minimally invasive alternatives to traditional surgeries. As a woman, she’s in the minority. Women make up less than 10% of interventional radiologists. She uses her position to help guide other women in radiology with everything from keeping up with the latest technology, to negotiating for better salaries. She visited with Ashley Thornberg.
