On Tuesday November 15, the Health Professions Advisors hosted a panel on women in medical research. The panel featured 3 women at different stages of their medical careers who spoke to students about pathways into medical research, trends among women in the field, and advice on balancing professional and personal lives.
I have been waking up early this entire week either for class or meetings, but I made the effort to wake up early this Saturday morning to attend the LILAC coffee session in the Wyndham Blue Room with Stephanie Eisenbarth M.D. Ph.D (BMC’96). I was curious about her path as a “double doctor” and her views of her Bryn Mawr education.
A couple weekends ago, I ran into my hell sister Maple Lee (BMC’17) while boarding the Blue Bus to Haverford for brunch. I don’t see her that often because she majors in Physics at Haverford, so most of her classes are there. After catching up with each other over brunch, we found out we were headed in the same direction – she to her Physics research lab and I to the Cantor Fitzgerald Gallery. I took a detour to the gallery by following Maple to her lab.
It’s also that time of year again… the Re:Humanities 2016 Call for Papers! I am part of the working group, comprised of students from the Tri-Colleges (Bryn Mawr, Haverford, Swarthmore), who puts together an annual 2-day digital humanities conference of undergraduate presentations and keynotes by prominent digital humanities researchers. We are now in the process of sending out the CFP (Call for Papers) and waiting for submissions. Conference: March 31-April 1, 2016 at Bryn Mawr College
Submission Deadline: January 1, 2016 (Midnight GMT)
