Sheryl Allen, M.D., associate professor of clinical emergency medicine and pediatrics and associate dean for medical student affairs will be featured from 7:30 to 8:30 a.m. Thursday, Jan. 23, in Fairbanks Hall, Room 1109. This lecture will also be presented as part of the 2014 IUSM Diversity Week speakers series.

Sharon P. Andreoli, M.D., Bryon P. and Frances D. Hollett Professor of Pediatrics director of the division of pediatric nephrology, will speak from 11:45 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Wednesday, Jan. 29, in Fairbanks Hall, Room 5005. Dr. Andreoli is president of the American Society of Pediatric Nephrology; a member of the board of Kidney Disease: Improving Global Outcomes; and the pediatric nephrology section editor of Advances in Renal Replacement Therapy.

She previously served as a councilor and secretary-treasurer at ASPN; a councilor and assistant secretary at the International Pediatric Nephrology Association; an associate editor of the American Journal of Kidney Diseases; and as a member of the editorial boards at "Kidney International," "Pediatric Nephrology" and "American Journal of Physiology: Renal, Fluid and Electrolyte."

The Stepping Stones of Women in Leadership series is intended to create a forum where all faculty and students can learn about professional development through hearing the personal career journeys of successful women. Featured guests are interviewed in a causal environment, where they describe the milestones that have shaped their careers and leadership philosophy. The events are held monthly in the spring. 

Stepping Stones events are open to the entire IUSM community, and pre-registration is strongly encouraged. For more information, visit the Office of Faculty Affairs and Professional Development website.
