WIZO/AUSiMED "Connecting Women" Brunch - May 2014

AUSiMED ran its first Women's event to a packed house of 120 women at Cinema Como. The attendees came to hear about the latest developments in genetic medicine including the recent trend of using genetics to "design babies" using IVF as well as the ethics and religious issues this raises.

AUSiMED also gave encouragement awards at the event to the top year 10 female science students in each of the Jewish Day Schools as well as $500 grants to each of these schools to fund programs at the schools designed to encourage girls to embark on science studies in their senior years.
