Speaker: Dr. Iris Gibbs, 
AssOC. Director of Admissions at Stanford Medicine

Cap and Gown is elated to invite you to the annual Stanford Women Winter Welcome. Winter Welcome celebrates the intergenerational community of Stanford women and gives you the opportunity to meet and welcome the newest members of the community: undergraduate students, especially freshmen and sophomores. It’s a great opportunity for you to form meaningful connections, gain insight from those with diverse experiences, and learn from the stories of successful women. 


This year, our keynote speaker is Dr. Iris C. Gibbs, a Professor of Radiation Oncology, Professor of Neurosurgery (courtesy) and Associate Dean of MD Admissions at Stanford Medicine. Dr. Gibbs will be speaking about perseverance in the face of adversity, embracing intersectional identities, and how to keep innovating outside of the classroom. RSVP LINK
