  • “Advancing Women in Science and Medicine has achieved success in gaining recognition for women in science and showcasing their impressive achievements,” noted Kevin J. Tracey at the event. “The AWSM initiative is important to the Feinstein Institute, and we want to ensure that women in science feel supported and celebrated today and in the future.”

    The first AWSM Girl Scout Award was also presented during the event. The winner of this award, a member of the Girl Scouts of Nassau County, will receive research training as a summer intern at the Feinstein Institute and receive a $2,000 scholarship funded by AWSM to support educational opportunities. Over the past several years, the Girl Scouts have put effort behind trying to encourage their members to develop an interest in science, technology, engineering and math. To support these efforts, AWSM invited 10th and 11th grade Girl Scouts from Nassau County to the Feinstein Institute to learn about careers in biomedical research, and created the AWSM Girl Scout Award.

    Laurie Glimcher, MD, the Stephen and Suzanne Weiss dean and professor of medicine at Weill Cornell Medical College and provost for Medical Affairs at Cornell University, also spoke at the event and was awarded the 2013 AWSM Award for Excellence. She was conferred this award due to her outstanding achievements in science and medicine, her strong leadership skills, and her commitment to advancing women’s careers.
