Department Attends Women in Science and Engineering Seminar

Gina Greenwood and Dr. Maria Daniela Martin participated as panelists in a UWSMPH hosted seminar for the UW Women in Science and Engineering (WISE) learning community recently. ( The seminar was organized by Dr. Elizabeth Sadowski and Suzanne Swift (WISE), and sponsored by Dean Golden. A group of accomplished UWSMPH women faculty and staff volunteered their time and shared their career experiences and wisdom with over 125 UW undergraduate women who are just beginning their career journeys. From physician to physicist, the students heard how STEM majors can pursue a variety of careers in medicine and health care. The students left with more knowledge and confidence to pursue careers in healthcare, knowing there are women who have taken these paths and can help them along the way.
