January 2017 Program
Dr. Hoda Anton-Culver, professor and chair of the Department of Epidemiology in the School of Medicine at UCI, presented on “The Global Cancer Burden” to a packed audience for the January 2017 AAUW-LB program. She shared her latest findings in cancer research followed by a question and answer session.
THE LEARNING CLUB: UNDERWAY AGAIN
AAUW-LB’s after school tutoring program at El Morro Elementary School – The Learning Club (TLC) – resumed on January 12 with an orientation meeting for tutors and participating teachers. Thirty-six members and volunteers from the community provide one-on-one tutoring twice each week to seventeen (17) students who have been recommended for the program by their teachers. We are currently serving 6-2nd graders, 4-3rd graders, 4-4th graders and 3-5th graders. We are extremely grateful to all the tutors and substitute tutors for volunteering their time to help these students. But we always have requests from teachers to enroll students in the program that we are unable to fulfill. So if you have the hours from 2:15 – 3:30pm on Tuesday and/or Thursday afternoons, or know of someone who does and would like to help a child learn, please contact Peggie Thomas (499-1817, firstname.lastname@example.org) or Barbara Antonacci (215-5553, email@example.com). The students need your help!
Coming March 18, 2017

News from National
This year was action-packed for AAUW’s advocacy efforts. Our reach spanned from the White House to Congress to statehouses across the country. As the year comes to a close, AAUW would like to thank our members and supporters for carrying out our mission to empower all women and girls. Your advocacy and generous support have ensured that we continued many successful and exciting policy activities throughout the year. But the hard work isn’t over yet!
Looking for a New Year’s resolution? Help grow AAUW Action Network by sharing these successes with friends and family members and urging them to advocate for issues affecting women and girls as a Two-Minute Activist. In the list below, you’ll see how much we have done together throughout the past year — and the more our advocacy community grows, the more we’ll be able to do in 2017! If this election taught us anything, it’s that AAUW’s nonpartisan voice and research-based advocacy are needed now more than ever. You provide the voice, we’ll provide the megaphone in 2017 and beyond!
