Lunch Discussion with Dr. Priscilla Wyrick
November 11, 2014 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Please join us for an informal lunch discussion with Dr. Wyrick, one of the very first woman undergraduates admitted to UNC. She looks forward to sharing her historical perspective on women in science, and several eye opening experiences she had while navigating higher education and academia as one of the first women in her field. Dr. Wyrick went on to complete her PhD in Microbiology at UNC, and eventually returned as a faculty member here before moving to East Tennessee State University to Chair their Microbiology Department until retiring a few years ago.
Each step along the way Dr. Wyrick was truly a pioneer for women in higher education and the academic workforce, and she serves as an important reminder to us all about how far we have come as a society in terms of trying to provide equal opportunities for all.
We hope you all can join us for this very exciting discussion.
Lunch will be provided. Please RSVP and sign up for lunch preference here.
