From the Director's Desk:
I would like to thank all of the speakers, sponsors and participants of the 2020 Women in Science, Entrepreneurship, and Research events. I was not sure what would happen once WISER went virtual, but it actually allowed us to connect with more participants around the state, and the country. If you were unable to join us, all of the WISER events are on the Missouri Cures Facebook page and YouTube. I also invite you to continue the discussion with our WISER Conversations Facebook Group, and listen to the WISER Conversations podcast.

Kindest regards,

Dena Ladd
Executive Director
