Call for Nominations: Elizabeth Bingham Mentoring Award
The Elizabeth Bingham Award is presented each year to a distinguished local scientist who has significantly influenced the advancement of women in science. (See http://awisphl.org/what-we-do/awards/bingham-mentoring-award/.)

Think back on your career, no matter how long or short it has been. Has there been someone who has had a great impact on your career as a role model, or as a mentor? Was there someone who helped you and others select or advance in your careers or who was willing to listen to your problems and give you support when needed? If so, you now have an opportunity to recognize that person’s contribution.

The recipient of the Elizabeth Bingham Award receives an engraved plaque and is the guest of honor and speaker at our annual awards banquet. Nominating letters, accompanied by a brief biography (no set format for nominations), are due by January 15 of each year for presentation at the banquet the following May. To submit a nomination or for more information or a postal mail address contact president@awisphl.org

Dr. Yvonne Paterson received the Elizabeth Bingham Mentoring Award in 2002. Dr. Paterson continues to be a resource and mentor for women in science. She was recently profiled in the Penn Medicine Magazine. Read the article here:
