Message from the WIMS President


WIMS continues to be a visible and valued presence on our KU Medical Center campus. I am looking forward to this coming year and serving as your WIMS president. I am proud of the accomplishments WIMS has made and am excited to keep moving forward. As I stated at the annual dinner, I want to deepen the involvement across all 3 Schools to support and advance women's careers. My goals for this coming year are to: 

1. Introduce Dean Sally Maliski (SON) and Dean Abiodun Akinwuntan (SHP) to the WIMS organization.

2. Have all 3 Deans attend the quarterly meetings with WIMS presidents.

3. Continue past-president, Christie Befort's initiative to focus on mid-career for women in all 3 Schools.

I look forward to working with our WIMS organization and serving as your WIMS president.
