Hundreds gather for 41st annual Kaleidoscope

Published: Sept. 11, 2015

Hundreds of mid-Michigan women gathered to network, learn, shop, and be inspired at the 41st annual Kaleidoscope on Friday, Sept. 11, at the Kellogg Hotel and Conference Center in East Lansing. Sparrow Foundation and Women Working Wonders (W3) present the event each year.

The daylong event focuses on women's health and education initiatives, and features unique opportunities to learn and network. This event furthers W3's mission to support the physical and psychological health of women through community leadership, resource development and outreach initiatives.

This year’s event featured Antonio Dajer, M.D., as the Keynote speaker. Dr. Dajer was a medical first responder when the World Trade Centers were attacked on September 11, 2001 and was the sole attending physician on duty when terrorist-hijacked planes purposefully hit the twin towers of the World Trade Center. Some 1,500 victims were treated by Dr. Dajer and his team that day.

Also on hand was a Kaleidoscope favorite, Professor Elliot Engel, an award-winning teacher of English and American literature, who presented a lecture on Frank Lloyd Wright, the great American architect.
