The Midwest Region hosted the 6th Annual Women for Science Luncheon, an inspiring event honoring women who change lives. The program included a presentation by the Weizmann Institute's Dr. Karina Yaniv, who spoke about her pioneering research on the lymphatic system, and her roles as both a woman scientist and mother. The event also recognized the 2016 Vision and Impact Award honoree Dr. Janice Feinberg, whose passionate philanthropic commitment to the advancement of women in science is empowering young women in her community, and improving science education in Israel.
