Great news! Starting Wednesday, September 20, 2017, individual speaker event tickets go on sale for the Marilyn K. Glick Women’s Enrichment Series at the Indianapolis Propylaeum. The series opener is October 19, 2017 when we host a renowned mother-daughter team who will be discussing their steps toward success in the medical and television journalism fields and how they have negotiated their relationship through the growth of their careers. Hooray for two Northwestern University alumni!


Recently named the 7th president of Oakland University, Dr. Ora Hirsch Pescovitz has years of academic, medical and business experience.

She is a renowned pediatric endocrinologist and researcher who has published more than 190 manuscripts and books. She also serves as professor of biomedical sciences at the Oakland University William Beaumont School of Medicine. She brings to Oakland University more than 30 years of experience leading change in academic health centers and universities, delivering innovations in bench-to-bedside discovery and facilitating collaborations between academic and community partners. Elected to the National Academy of Medicine, Dr. Pescovitz also contributes to positive transformation in American education.

A graduate of Northwestern University and the Feinberg School of Medicine AND the Northwestern University Honors Program in Medical Education, Dr. Pescovitz’s enthusiasm and loyalty for Northwestern University was passed on to her daughter Naomi. Naomi Pescovitz is a graduate of the Northwestern University – Medill School of Journalism with double majors in Journalism and International Studies.

Naomi Pescovitz was the Eyewitness News Weekend Anchor at WTHR-TV, Indianapolis before her recent move to anchor and reporter for KMSP Fox 9 in the Greater Minneapolis-St. Paul viewing area. Active on Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat and more, Naomi was a reporter, associate producer, anchor and news director for the Emmy award winning Northwestern News Network. Naomi has held television journalist positions throughout the United States covering everything from politics to medicine. She was one of the first on the scene when Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords was shot while meeting with constituents at a local grocery store. Naomi believes this experience shaped her perspective, pushing her to find stories of hope and triumph even during the most difficult times.

Naomi is passionate about organ donation and research and she was honored for her medical reporting by the Minnesota Medical Association and LifeSource, the organ donation organization in the Upper Midwest.
