Dr. Deborah Gilboa

We have been told to “reduce stress” and “avoid stress” so much that experiencing stress feels like its own failure. Deborah Gilboa, MD, aka Dr. G, is a parenting and resilience expert who works with families, organizations, and businesses to identify the mindset and strategies to turn stress to an advantage and create resilience through personal accountability and culture change.

Renowned for her contagious humor, Dr. G inspires audiences with her illuminating stories and provides no-nonsense prescriptions for character development. She works with groups, businesses, and causes, across multiple generations, to rewire their cultures towards a common objective.

Her fluency in American Sign Language and her work with the deaf community has received national recognition and was the focus of her service as an Albert Schweitzer Fellow.

A graduate of University of Pittsburgh’s School of Medicine, Carnegie Mellon University, and as an alumna of Chicago’s Second City Improv Theater, Dr. G’s diverse background and experiences add to her credibility and lively storytelling.

She is also a Clinical Associate Professor for the University of Pittsburgh School Of Medicine and has received many awards for clinical excellence in teaching, including the Alpha Omega Alpha Volunteer Clinical Faculty Award.
