Women in Learning Luncheon Information

Colleagues and Friends of WIL,

We are delighted to invite you to attend our 6th annual Women in Learning Luncheon.  This year’s event will take place on Saturday, October 1, 2016 in Jersey City, NJ, as a satellite luncheon off of the Pavlovian Society’s wonderful annual conference.  Once again, we are fortunate to be graced with a stellar scientist as our guest speaker, Dr. Regina Sullivan.

Dr. Regina M. Sullivan is a Developmental Behavioral Neuroscientist researching the neurobiology underlying long-term mental health consequences after abuse and trauma in early life. Her research highlights differences between infant and adult brain responses to trauma, as well as how the caregiver can modify the response of the young brain. After completing her PhD with The City University of New York, she went on to train as a postdoc at Duke University and The University of California.  During her work at NYU, she has authored numerous publications and book chapters, and has lectured nationally and internationally on the neurobiology of infant attachment.  She has consulted for the NIH, chaired committees on child development across the country, served on the board on scientific journals, and has served a multitude of foundations on early life stress.  We are thrilled to present our distinguished guest, Dr. Regina Sullivan.

We look forward to hearing Dr. Sullivan’s take on science, academics, and everything in between! You may RSVP for the 2016 luncheon @ www.womeninlearning.com.  For those of you who are new to WIL, welcome to the family!  You can easily become a member of WIL at www.womeninlearning.com.

Please don’t forget to DONATE to WIL (<-please use this link; donate button on the right goes to Pavlovian Society).  Your donation is imperative to the ongoing success of this luncheon.  We ask that a donation of at least $10 be made to offset the price of the luncheon.  For those of you who are in a position to donate more, we greatly appreciate it.  Since we are funded through small donations, every little bit helps! If you cannot make it to the event this year, consider making a donation anyhow.  Your support is extremely valuable to ongoing WIL efforts.
