Careers in Health Symposium March 31

Posted: March 27, 2007

The CDC will host its second annual Alumnae in Medicine symposium on March 31. The daylong event is aimed toward helping MHC students explore career options in medicine by letting them talk and network with alumnae who are leaders in the health field. The event will begin with a keynote address by Dr. Deborah Klein Walker '65, president of the American Public Health Association. There will also be a panel consisting of five alumnae representing different areas of the health professions, a Q&A session, and small-group discussions with the panelists.

The alumnae panelists are Janet Buhlmann '89, instructor of medicine at Harvard Medical School and a senior postdoctoral fellow at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston; Linda Craib FP'02, registered nurse in the Pediatric ICU at Children's Medical Center in Hartford, Connecticut; Robin Perlmutter Goldenson '85, staff radiologist, Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston; Melanie Anne Iocco '90, staff pharmacist, Northampton VA Medical Center; and Emily Weber LeBrun '96, resident physician, Baystate Medical Center-Department of Ob-Gyn.

The symposium will be held in Cleveland Hall, Room L-1, starting at 11 am. The event is open to MHC students, staff, and faculty, and students from the Five Colleges. No preregistration is necessary, but space is limited.

The symposium is made possible by a long-term president's grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
