Words of Strength
Creating connections across diversity
By bringing together future leaders from around the world and supporting their education and development, Mindy feels that she is helping to shape the future, as these leaders will go out and help resolve issues around dementia and social justice.
Mindy has always enjoyed assisting those from technical and scientific fields translate their knowledge, and helping them reach broader audiences. She has instructed students and faculty in telling their scientific stories, via papers and presentations, in creative and engaging ways.
Mindy's work focuses on bringing together diverse groups and ensuring that all are supported and prepared to both contribute and learn. Mindy is thrilled to be a part of an educational program that does this in order to address global health inequities.
