Anne Klibanski Visiting Lecture Series
March 28, 2023 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm EDT
The Anne Klibanski Visiting Lecture Series was created to support and advance the careers of women. These lectures bring together faculty from institutions that have hosted Anne Klibanski Scholars with MGH scholars, on topics that overlap both research areas.
Presenter: Jennifer A. Rymer, MD, John Bush Simpson Assistant Professor of Medicine, Duke University
Dr. Rymer joined the Duke Cardiology faculty in July, 2020 as an interventional cardiologist. She is the second woman in Duke’s history to join the interventional team.
Dr. Rymer has 70 publications to her credit and serves on leadership and publication committees for the American Heart Association, the American College of Cardiology, the Society for Vascular Medicine and the Society for Cardiovascular Angiography and Interventions. She is also the recipient of the Walter Floyd Award for Excellence in Clinical Cardiology, the DCRI Harrington Research Award for Excellence in Clinical Research, the Women as One Research Award, the William Keating Career Development Award from the American College of Cardiology, and a Career Development Award from the American Heart Association.
The work she did during fellowship, particularly on the Inclusion and Diversity Task Force, led Dr. Rymer to devote some of her time to increasing the representation in the field of cardiology. She was recently named the trainee liaison for the Department of Medicine’s Program for Women in Internal Medicine (PWIM) where she has helped create and facilitate programs tailored to the needs of women trainees.
She hopes to demonstrate, through her work with PWIM and elsewhere, that a career in cardiology is a fulfilling and rewarding choice for women. Dr. Rymer is also member in the Duke Clinical Research Institute.
