Leading Moms: Carol Friedrich-Fong Talks BioTech

On October 3, 2012 teamed up with our friends at Modern Mama and Entrepreneur Mom Now Vancouver to present Leading Moms. The day was full of inspiration, as we highlighted moms who are difference-makers in a variety of fields, from fashion to politics to business to the arts to science, and a whole lot more. We were treated to talks, videos, musical performances and a fashion show. We ate breakfast inside the H.R. MacMillan Science Centre, and we ate lunch outside in the sunshine. We were energized and motivated by the whole experience.

Dr. Carol Friedrich-Fong

When she’s not delivering inspiring talks, Dr. Carol Friedrich-Fong is the Program Head and an instructor in the Biotechnology Department at BCIT. She’s been educating students on microbiology and biotechnology for 10 years. She’s also taught nursing, environmental health and nuclear medicine students, and is involved in yearly workshops to reach out to high school students, who may want to pursue a career in biotechnology. As she lays out the amazing possibilities and diversity of biotechnology, their excitement is evident, which Carol enjoys immensely. This fast-moving technology carries ethical, environmental, social and economic consequences, and Carol feels it is just as important for her students to think critically about these implications.

Happy watching!
