Diversity in 2019: DEM at the Inaugural Women in Medicine and Science Symposium


The School of Medicine and Public Health successfully held its inaugural Women in Medicine and Science Symposium this November. Sessions highlighted thought leaders exploring topics in leadership and professional development for women in medicine and science, followed by a networking reception.

Congratulations to DEM's Vice Chair of Education, Dr. Mary Westergaard, on her efforts in bringing this symposium to fruition and for moderating the one-hour panel discussion with women leaders at SMPH. The symposium featured Department Chair Dr. Azita Hamedani as a presenter and panelist focusing on mentorship and sponsorship in academic medicine.
