Hello Everyone! I have exciting news! The WEMGS will be hosting the first ever Women in the IAEMGS Luncheon at this year's ICEM in Ottawa, Canada!
Dr. Kim Hellemans, Associate Dean of Science at Carleton University (and a bit of a local celebrity) has graciously agreed to present "Stress, Gender & Coping during the COVID-19 Pandemic” at the Women in the IAEMGS Luncheon on Wednesday, August 31, 12:00-1:30.
And, as usual, we will have excellent food and conversation!
Hope to see everyone there!
