"I am committed to giving back to ELAM, because I believe ELAM represents the best of midlife learning: relevant, provided in a safe haven, grounded in modern concepts of adult learning and – most importantly – committed to connecting you to a lifelong circle of supportive peers."
Yolangel Hernandez Suarez, MD - Read Yolangel's Story

"The ELAM network is a fantastic resource for all professional and leadership dilemmas. Some examples are job search, hiring processes, preparation for an interview, negotiations for new positions, trouble shooting of existing institutional conflicts, and strategic planning. Most importantly, there is the invaluable human resource of our learning communities where no problem goes unresolved."
Gyongyi Szabo, MD, PhD

"The ELAM/ELUM community has become a major force in my life. One of the greatest gifts of the program is this network of phenomenal, accessible, and engaged women! The Pleiades (my Learning Community) are a source of wisdom, advice, and friendship. Similarly, the ELUMs at the University of Utah are a tight knit group."
Harriet Hopf, MD
