Celebrating Women in Medicine Month – September

Looking forward to September, the Women in Medicine group at Cooper would like to invite participation in our virtual and in-person events. To be mindful of everyone’s busy schedules and to not concentrate all our events in September, we are spreading out the offerings over August, September, and October.

Our Women in Medicine group is highlighting the experiences of our women colleagues in research, education, patient care, and more through online panel events and blog posts throughout the month. We hope you’ll join us for these important and exciting discussions. Our scheduled panel events will take place online and will include an opportunity for questions to our panelists. More detailed information will follow but we hope you will block these dates/times on your calendar and join us in support and allyship.
