Color a Cure
Advertising Support for Cancer Awareness Club
The Cancer Awareness Club (previously known as Colleges Against Cancer) is hosting Color A Cure. Last year, due to campus feedback we changed the mission of our club and partnered with Wilmot Cancer Institute right here at the University of Rochester in hopes of better the lives of cancer patients and investing in cancer research right here at home.
No longer a part of the American Cancer Society, we have had some freedom to rebrand our biggest event of the year and last spring created Color A Cure. This year we are hosting Color A Cure once more. We hope you can come join us on April 7th, 3pm to 5pm in the May Room for a fun-filled afternoon of activities, raffles, food, and guest performances.

Women in STEM Panel
Cosponsorship with SWE and She’s The First
She’s the First and Society of Women Engineers are organizing Women in STEM panel, held on March 5th from 5pm to 6pm in Wegmans 1400. We have invited a variety of different professors from fields such as BME, Brain and Cognitive Sciences, and many others to speak about their experiences and paths to success in their careers. The professors who are attending are Dr. Amy Lerner (BME), Dr. Astrid Muller (ChemE), Dr. Renee Miller (BCS), Dr. Alexis Stein (Biology), and Dr. Ayla Gafni (Math). This panel is meant to shed light on the challenges that women face while entering STEM careers, as well as inspire the young women who are pursuing STEM-related fields while here, at the University of Rochester.
While the women on this panel will offer advice for women, we also aim to educate the other half of the population in the hopes that we can help create a more equal playing field in the future.
We are not asking for a set amount of members to attend, just as many as are interested. We also ask that you spread the word about the event and encourage others to go, as well as submit questions to the attached google form for our panelists here.
