DECA Girls Represent Speaker Series

“The DECA Girls Represent campaign aims to encourage girls to pursue careers that usually lack female representation. The Speaker Series delivers unique insight for girls by hosting informative and inspiring talks from female professionals in underrepresented fields. These talks will take place in the library on the following days: 10/26, 11/2, 11/16, 11/29, and 12/14.

We’re delighted to welcome our first speaker on October 26th, Dr. Joan Marie Hunter!

Dr. Hunter was born and raised outside of New Orleans, and completed medical school at Louisiana State University School of Medicine in 2008. She moved to the northwest for her Internal Medicine residency at OHSU and has lived in Portland since. Dr. Hunter has worked as a hospitalist for the Vancouver Clinic at PeaceHealth Southwest for the past three years, and is currently the Hospitalists Department Co-Chair. Her medical interests include women’s health and preventative medicine. Away from work, Dr. Hunter enjoys the outdoors and spending time with her 3-year-old son and 8-month old daughter.”
