Join us for an exciting new program series that honors the contributions of Black women in the fields of science, technology, engineering, and math.

In this program, meet Tarsha Ward, Ph.D and learn about her work studying genetics and heart disease.

From 1:00pm to 1:30pm, hear Dr. Tarsha Ward share her personal journey as a young Black woman in science, and ask her questions about why she finds science cool and exciting.

Then, try some hands-on activities inspired by different areas of Dr. Tarsha Ward’s work, to include learning the parts of the heart and modeling the genetics of heart disease.

Dr. Tarsha Ward is a biomedical scientist who works at Harvard Medical School.

This program series was created in combination with Ellice Patterson, Biologist and Founder/Artistic and Executive Director of Abilities Dance Boston, and a Discovery Museum Science & Engineering Communication Fellow.
