This year, Mercer University’s School of Medicine (MUSM) is celebrating their tenth annual “Women in Medicine” Celebration.

Despite the exclusive name, the Women in Medicine Celebration is open to all Mercer faculty, staff, and students. MUSM encourages the Macon community to participate in the event as well.

“This is an annual event, and proceeds go towards the Detmer-Harris Endowment Fund, which memorializes two women from MUSM who served as strong role models for MUSM’s women, Dona Harris and Kristina Detmer,” Carol Bokros, the assistant director of Pre-Health Professions Programs, said in an email.

Throughout the month of February, the Women in Medicine Celebration will host a series of events and encourage all Mercer students, faculty, and staff to participate:
