Yesterday, our longtime collaborator, Northwestern University Professor & Researcher Dr. Teresa Woodruff was recognized by President Obama. As mentioned in the last post, it has been our great privilege to work with her, and on her research initiatives. This particular honor is for the work she has done for mentoring urban minority high-school girls for college and careers in science and health. NUIT AMPS produced a documentary about this aspect of her work in 2010.
The clip above is just the trailer, the entire 30 minute documentary about this initiative can be viewed on the main Women’s Health Science website. Our work with Dr. Woodruff is extensive. Her vision for the online curricular components of this work were also realized in the web projects we had honor of working with her to build. This is great honor for a her, for the University, and for every one that has had the great pleasure to work with her.
