Dr. Joan Bennett of Rutgers University gave a very inspirational keynote, The XX Factor: Women in Science, Engineering and Medicine, which highlighted the social expectations of gender roles in our professional lives and how to narrow the gender gap in science and medicine. Guest were also captivated by talks from Drs. Danielle Garsin, Dianna Milewicz, Louise McCullough and Ruth Heidelberger. The planning committee for this event included Amber Luong, MD, PhD, Ines Moreno Gonzalez, PhD, Ruth Heidelberger, MD, PhD, and Kevin Morano, PhD.
