Eighth Annual Sowers’ Seed Lecture Features Trinity Trustee Nicole V. Lang, M.D. ’89
Alumnae, alumni and friends are encouraged to join the Trinity community on Thursday, March 21, 2013 at 4:30 p.m. in Social Hall for the eighth annual Sowers’ Seed Lecture, featuring Dr. Nicole V. Lang M.D., ’89. Founder, President and CEO of Washington Pediatric Associates, Dr. Lang will explore the relationships between faith and service as she shares her thoughts about concepts of community service and social justice as reaffirmed by her Trinity education.
Dr. Lang is a board certified physician; a tireless advocate for literacy, children and the disabled; Assistant Professor of Pediatric and Adolescent Medicine, GWU School of Medicine; and Vice Chair, Trinity Board of Trustees.
As a student in medical school, Dr. Lang worked in clinics in West Africa. The experience led her to spearhead an international partnership between her medical school and a medical school in Eritrea, East Africa, to promote medical education and residency programs. In addition, Dr. Lang serves on the boards of: Reach Out and Read (ROAR), a national nonprofit that promotes early literacy and school readiness; Lollipop Kids, a foundation that provides hope and support to disabled children and their families; and the Girl Scout Council of the Nation’s Capital.
Established by Kelly Snider Dunn ’64 and her family, the Sowers’ Seed program highlights alumnae who have incorporated into their lives the traditions of community service and social justice that are central to the Trinity experience and reflect the Catholic tradition that influences Trinity’s mission. These alumnae are invited to come to campus to share their stories with Trinity students, in the hope that their stories will inspire new generations to consider community service, either as a volunteer or as a career.
Please plan to join us, and prepare to be inspired by a Trinity woman whose faith and energy translate to good works for her local and global communities. Prior to the lecture, representatives from several community non-profits will be available to speak with interested persons regarding volunteer opportunities at their organizations.
