New MCAT Administration Date

To address the recent spikes in registration for the current MCAT exam, we have added one additional administration date on Saturday, December 6. We will also be adding a limited number of seats to the existing November-January exams in the regions that have been experiencing the most demand. The last administration of the current exam will be January 23, 2015.

Beyond these additions, we will not be adding any other administration dates, as that would jeopardize the success of the launch of the new exam. Registration for the new MCAT2015 exam will open in mid-February 2015, with the first administration of the new exam on April 17, 2015.

Seattle AWIS: October Program (10/15/2014) – Global Empowerment of Women through STEM

Seattle Association for Women in Science’s October Program
“Global Empowerment of Women through STEM”

October 15, 2014 • 6:00pm – 8:00pm

Seattle AWIS members often discuss how we can support each other and continue our own professional
development as women in science. We strongly believe that access to this advocacy and support is a real
benefit to us as women in often male-dominated fields. The same — and often much stronger– challenges
face many women the world over. Especially in the developing world, women continue to face discrimination
in access to education, work, economic assets, and participation in decision making and government.
Access to healthcare is also limited: the maternal mortality ratio in developing nations is still fourteen times
higher than in western or developed regions

However, there are many organizations, often based in our local Seattle community, that are working toward
universal access to basic education, training women in health services, and supporting gender equality for
women in all parts of the world, just as AWIS supports you! Educating and empowering women, especially
in the STEM-related environmental sustainability and health fields, makes it easier to combat disease, ensure
environmental sustainability, and ease poverty and hunger.

Please join Seattle AWIS in welcoming:
Ginna Brelsford, Executive Director of Ayni Education International , an organization that hosts a basic
education and computer literacy program for girls in Afghanistan;

Shelby Tarutis, Director and Founder of GambiaHELP , which equips local women’s communities with healthcare
education and sustainable food and water programs; and

Lillian Baer, Chairperson of the Board of Directors of the Grandmother Project , which focuses on educating and
empowering female elders.

Our panelists will discuss their specific programs, the difference that STEM-related education, health, and
environmental sustainability programs have made in these developing communities, where they see their
organizations going in the future, and how YOU can contribute to these efforts from right here in Seattle.

Programming Survey due before Oct. 15th!
We encourage you to complete our Programming Survey before the Oct. 15th program! The 20-question survey
takes less than five minutes, but there is also an opportunity for you to leave more detailed feedback at the end if you
are interested in sharing your thoughts with us. Everyone is welcome to share their feedback—periodic AWIS attendees
, non-members, and student and professional members. At our October program, we will be raffling off a Starbucks’ gift
card for one lucky person who has completed the survey! To enter the raffle, enter your email address at bottom of the form .

6:00pm – Networking and Refreshments
6:30pm – Panel Discussion
7:30pm – Networking
