Florida NWiS Sets Sail
Florida campus Network for Women in Science (NWiS) recently took to the sea, hosting a summer evening sailing cruise of Palm Beach and Peanut Island. The July 22 event drew nearly two dozen NWiS members and guests. While the organization's monthly meetings focus on issues of concern to women in science, recreational events such as the sailing outing are planned to help foster a sense of community and fun among NWiS members and other Scripps Research groups, said organizer Briana Weiser, a graduate student in the Tellinghuisen lab.
