Zoomed In

If you are like me by now you may feel a little overwhelmed by technology and somewhat “Zoomed” out, but then come some outstanding events that renew our enthusiasm. Such is the case with Athena’s Virtual Leadership Program’s upcoming program “How COVID-19 is Accelerating Modern Medicine.” According to Athena, “a panel of public and private industry experts will uncover new avenues of health access with the surge of telemedicine adoption as providers see more patients remotely to mitigate the risk of transmission – from the design of mobile testing technologies now deployed to expand point of care testing options to the FDA’s approach to bringing coronavirus prevention and treatments to market as fast as possible.”

The featured panelists will be Ann Mond Johnson, CEO of the American Telemedicine Association; Marsha Henderson, former FDA associate commissioner; Katherine Atkinson, chief commercial officer at Truvian. Moderating the event will be Dr. Anita Gupta, senior vice president medical strategy, Heron Therapeutics. Planned for May 28, the virtual event will take place from 11 a.m. to noon. Tickets are $15 for members and $25 for non-members. Registration is through the organization’s website at AthenaSD.org.

Athena is an advocacy organization dedicated to helping women through leadership development to advance in STEM careers.

ACG San Diego is also hosting a “Virtual PowerHour” Thursday, May 21 from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. The Zoom event promises to be an informal networking event for ACG members, non-members and guests featuring “opportunities to meet and network with San Diego Deal Makers in the Middle Market space.” Registration for this event is free and can be done on their website: www.acg.org/sandiego/events/acg-san-diego-virtual-powerhour-may-21-2020.

Wheelhouse Credit Union has launched a new “Badge of Honor” Scholarship Program for San Diego County high school seniors who are the children of first responders. The $1,000 scholarships are available to five high school seniors who are graduating this year and have a parent , grandparent, or legal guardian who is an active member of law enforcement, fire protection service, healthcare or EMT in San Diego County. According to the credit union, the students need to have demonstrated leadership, public service, and have a desire to make an impact on their schools and communities. Each must have at least a 3.0 grade point average and plan to attend an accredited college or university.

“As we face new challenges and uncertainty during this unprecedented time, the first responders who are on the front lines working to protect all of us are the true heroes,” President and CEO Lisa Paul-Hill said.

The Badge of Honor scholarships are in addition to the credit union’s annual college scholarship program which has awarded $73,000 in scholarships since it was created in 2005 to support San Diego high school seniors. More information and applications are available online at WheelhouseCU.com/scholarships.
