Medicine et cetera by @ajengmd officially writing for Agora, the “L’Oréal-UNESCO For Women in Science” community

Dear all,

I’m just sharing this very exciting news: I have been asked to be an official writer for Agora, the “L’Oréal-UNESCO For Women in Science” community!

This website, or rather this international community, describes itself as “the platform dedicated to exchange and sharing among members of the ‘For Women in Science’ community. Agora is a meeting place for its members – award laureates, fellowship winners, academics, students and researchers – where they can talk about current advances in scientific research, the place and the role of women in science, their education, national and international careers, and the global development of the L’Oréal-UNESCO For Women in Science program.”

Few months ago I had the honor to be interviewed by Agora/ The L’Oreal Foundation about women in science. And just few days ago, my article, “Facing the challenge of climate change in health issues” is published in Agora.

And as I mentioned before, more than having the chance to submit an article, I had the honor of being asked to be the official contributor for the website. I’m quite convinced that I’m the only Indonesian writing for the site. And it’s indeed a great honor to be asked to join Agora although I’m not a L’Oréal-UNESCO Award Laureate, that is the women awarded fellowships (research grant) by the program.

Below is a preview of the website homepage,

And this is the published article, as appeared on the website,
