Feedback Dr. Lowman has received concluding her talk can be found below:

I enjoyed your talk at the Women’s Equity Day celebration.  It brought me back to my father’s advising me to be a teacher “just in case.”  Fortunately I realized that life is not over and went back for a PhD in the field of my choice.  I admire you for your courage in standing up for being a whole person and not an appendage.
Thank you for your work in biology and on being a woman.
