Homeward Bound

Kristin Mitchell

Soldotna Dr. Kristin Mitchell recently returned from a three-week journey to Antarctica with the Homeward Bound program. Find out about the leadership collaboration between women working in STEMM and about what to pack for a journey from the far north to the far south (hint: don't take advice from an Australian).

After a couple decades of medical practice, a local doctor is seeking to expand her horizons — by going to the other side of the world. D. Kristin Mitchell will be joining an expedition with other women of science to the waters of Antarctica.

In the interest of full disclosure, Mitchell is a member of the KDLL board of directors.
