Please see message below from Nora Mathison, the senior editor of "Lost Women of Science"
My name is Nora Mathison, and I’m the senior editor of a new podcast called Lost Women of Science, in partnership with PRX and Scientific American. Each season explores the life and work of one woman who has made significant contributions to a scientific field, but who has nonetheless been overlooked.
As a nonprofit educational initiative, a big part of our mission is to inspire students, particularly girls and young women, to pursue careers in STEM. It is vital that we connect with a young audience, and we need your help doing that.
We just launched the first episode of Season One, about Dr. Dorothy Andersen, a pediatric pathologist who was the first to identify cystic fibrosis in 1938. The season’s four episodes chronicle Dr. Andersen’s fascinating life and important work, and also explain the science of the disease she studied. We think it is a fantastic—and very entertaining!— learning opportunity.
We hope you’ll share the Lost Women of Science podcast with teachers in your association, and hope that they in turn will find a way to incorporate it into their science curriculum.
You can find us on most platforms, including Scientific American and Apple Podcasts.
Thanks so much for your help.
