Last month we published an additional four articles to reach 35 scientific articles for 2020! I remain incredibly proud of the hard work of my incredible lab and the brilliant scientists that I work with every day. My recognition by Castle Connolly as one of America’s Top Doctors and one of the Exceptional Women in Medicine is a direct result of our team’s tireless efforts.
This past Friday I had the opportunity to be the guest speaker to the Hauenstein Center for Presidential Studies Cook Leadership Academy. My title was “The Leadership Thread Between Research and Practice.” It was wonderful to engage with a rising group of leaders at the start of their careers. Next month, Ari Weinzweig, the owner of Zingerman’s, is speaking on “The Power of Beliefs”. It is a very interesting series and it was also rewarding to learn how many of these brilliant young individuals plan on making Michigan their home.
I am moderating a SEEN Magazine virtual event on Wednesday, October 21 entitled “COVID, Kids and Mental Health. My good friend Dr. Sheila Marcus, a child psychiatrist at Michigan Medicine, is a featured speaker, and we will be joined by other local experts to help families cope and thrive during this challenging time. Register here. Also, please if you know of young mothers who are dealing with virtual learning for their young children, please forward them this newsletter—as this event will provide very useful information, and there will be ample time for questions and discussion.
So much is still to come this year. I look forward to sharing more with you next month. Please follow our latest updates on Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn. If I can help you in any way, please contact me.
