YOUTH H.S. girls graduate from Oncofertility Program


The Oncofertility Saturday Academy (OSA) at Northwestern University gradu- ated 21 students from the Young Women’s Leadership Charter School of Chicago on Feb. 18.


The program, the only of its kind in the city, was co-founded by Dr. Teresa Woodruff and Megan E. Faurot in 2007 to inspire the next generation of women scientists. The juniors and seniors in the academy con- ducted advanced experiments in fertility and cancer research alongside scientists and doctors at Northwestern’s facilities. The OSA is sponsored by YWLCS, Northwestern’s Institute for Women’s Health Research at Feinberg School of Medicine and the university’s Center for Reproductive Research and the School of Education & Social Policy.
