Regenstrief research scientist Nicole Fowler, PhD, was recognized as an outstanding woman of inspiration during an event organized by the Indiana Historical Society. The event, A Toast to NOW (Network of Outstanding Women), celebrated women and connected current female leaders with future leaders.
Dr. Fowler and about a dozen other women were recognized for their leadership and contributions to the community.
Dr. Fowler is the associate director of the Indiana University Center for Aging Research at Regenstrief as well as an assistant professor of medicine at IU School of Medicine. Through her research, she works to improve the quality of life for older adults with Alzheimer’s disease and their family caregivers. She is especially focused on supporting caregivers in medical decision making. Her work was recently referenced in recommendations made by an influential task force.
In addition to recognizing the women of inspiration, the event featured a panel discussion with female business leaders and allowed guests to network and tour the Women’s Suffrage Exhibit. The event also celebrated the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment.
The Indiana Historical Society hosted the event with the goal of establishing a platform where women can form connections with each other, share experiences and develop new skills for success.
