Symposium: Celebration and Reflection
On June 1, 2018 Yale School of Medicine will host a symposium commemorating the 100-year anniversary of women at Yale School of Medicine. Sponsored by the Committee on the Status of Women in Medicine (SWIM), the Minority Organization for Retention & Expansion (MORE), and the Dean’s Office, this event will celebrate the contributions of women faculty and alumnae from the School of Medicine. The symposium will feature speakers who will discuss the challenges for women in their fields, as well as those encountered on the pathway to finding life-work balance.
Dr. Nina Stachenfeld and Dr. Elizabeth Jonas, Co-Chairs of Committee on the Status of Women in Medicine at Yale School of Medicine, will open the day.

All are welcome to attend.
Three labs of the John B. Pierce Laboratory (Pieribone, Stachenfeld, Verhagen) went to D.C. to show and discuss their ongoing work among some of the ~30,000 (!) neuroscientists there. Of course after the posters and symposia there’s always a lot of catching up to do with other colleagues. Very fun and very useful!
