On Tuesday, June 4, the School of Medicine’s Center for Women’s Health Research and UCHealth hosted 50 girls from across the Front Range for the fifth annual Girls’ Career Day. The high school aged girls were offered opportunities to learn from and interact with health care professionals and researchers across campus in surgery, communications, endocrinology, psychiatry, dental medicine, and pharmacy.
Neill Epperson, MD, Chair of the Department of Psychiatry, shared the inspirational story of her upbringing, her education, and her career path and provided helpful insights to the girls. They also participated in many interactive activities and talked with staff and leadership about programs at the School of Medicine, the Physician Assistant program, the Physical Therapy program, the School of Dental Medicine, and the Skaggs School of Pharmacy.
