Every girl has the ability to lead.
But only one girl in five believes she can.
Together, we can change this. Together, we can get her there.
Our ToGetHerThere luncheon highlights our efforts to transform the leadership landscape for girls and raises critical funds needed to help girls reach their full potential. It is also a celebration of the many achievements of Girl Scouts, who are making a difference in their communities and poised to become the leaders of tomorrow.
Nearly 300 business and community leaders attended last year’s luncheon with keynote speaker Chief Justice Linda Stewart Dalianis, 35th Chief Justice of the New Hampshire Supreme Court. Six Girl Scouts—winning essayists and finalists—attended this exciting event and Beth King, Ambassador Girl Scout, shared her winning essay.
Dr. Elizabeth A. Talbot, Deputy State Epidemiologist and Infectious Disease Specialist
Dr. Talbot is an infectious diseases- and tropical medicine-trained internist, who has had extensive experience in international and domestic disease control through outbreak investigation, clinical projects, research, and consultation.
She is the deputy state epidemiologist for the New Hampshire Department of Health and Human Services, and works with PATH, USAID PEPFAR and TB CARE II for global disease control activities, especially in Tanzania, Haiti, Swaziland, and the Democratic Republic of Congo. Dr. Talbot is a member of the Stop TB Partnership’s Working Group New Diagnostics, has participated in the writing of state, national and international disease control guidelines, and has authored more than 60 peer-reviewed publications on tuberculosis, outbreak investigation and disease control.
Most recently Dr. Talbot has become the training coordinator for the International Medical Corps, which is a non-governmental organization that responds to global health crises. She applied her disease control skill set to the emergency Ebola epidemic response in Sierra Leone.
Dr. Talbot also serves as an associate professor at the Geisel Medical School at Dartmouth, and is a consulting medical scientist for the Foundation for Innovative New Diagnostics (FIND) in Geneva, Switzerland.
