    On Friday, February 9th, from 10-11am ET, the Krembil Research Institute at University Health Network (UHN) in Toronto, Canada, will be hosting a live virtual event for students, in support and recognition of International Day of Women and Girls in Science and I’m hoping that you can help us spread the word!

    This is a free public education event geared to middle school, high school and early university age students of all backgrounds & affiliations.

    The event will feature short, engaging talks from three highly accomplished female scientists and doctors. Drs. Tina Felfeli (Donald K. Johnson Eye Institute), Nikita Looby (Schroeder Arthritis Institute) and Nardin Samuel (Krembil Brain Institute) will each give student-friendly presentations on their current work in vision, arthritis and brain research, to inspire the next generation of scientists (all genders).

    Our moderator is Dr. Chika Stacy Oriuwa, one of Time magazine’s “2021 Next Generational Leaders” and an accomplished physician, spoken word poet, and advocate for racialized and marginalized populations.

    This is a unique opportunity to hear from trailblazing scientists & clinicians about their backgrounds and career paths, their day-to-day lives in the lab, and what inspires and motivates them to work toward making discoveries that could one day help to save lives.

    Click here to register (registrants will also receive a recorded link) and feel free to share the info and registration link with your member, or anyone who may be interested. *ALSO* please note that upon registration, teachers have the opportunity to submit questions on behalf of their students or their classrooms, for the scientists to answer during the live Q&A!

    If there are any opportunities to include this info & the registration link in any upcoming eblasts, social media posts or newsletters, we would be most appreciative! And please consider sharing these posts on TwitterFacebookInstagram & LinkedIn. Here is a ‘sneak peek’ sizzle video of what to expect, too. J

    Last year, we had over 4,000 students & teachers join us from as far away as Africa, India & Australia and this year we are aiming even higher!
