MIMS - Moms in Medicine and Science - is a sub-group of the KU Women in Science and Medicine (WIMS) organization. Established in the fall of 2012 following the Lean-In Leadership Discussion on campus, the group is committed to serve all faculty and trainees from the School of Medicine, School of Nursing, and the School of Health Professions.
MISSION of MIMS Focus on supporting each other at any stage of family life through networking at monthly brown-bag meetings, a book club, and special events or even through our confidential, non-public Facebook group for support. This includes those who are considering starting a family, women with small to any age child/children, or even our empty-nesters. We welcome all moms who seek or are willing to give advice, ideas or suggestions on how to help balance a happy family life with a successful academic career.
