Programs

Annual programs supported by your sponsorship target events such as the new Inter-Professional Leadership Conference in Kansas City next year. The conference will benefit the academic and private arenas of healthcare, healthcare research and law are where woman (and men) professionals, health care providers and leaders from the region will join with university faculty from local  schools of medicine, nursing, health, and law to learn, collaborate, and network. Conference topics include current, cross-disciplinary medical and legal issues. The Conference also discusses challenges facing female professionals today and provides participants with tools to develop strategic plans to succeed in their chosen field.  This conference will be open to anyone interested.

Programs and events thoughout the year benefit from your sponsorship which targets the WIMS organization mission and activities and involve a commitment to serve all faculty and trainees from the School of Medicine, School of Nursing, and the School of Health Professions.  Categories have been established to reflect our Annual Silent Auction and can be made for specific purposes such as any one of our scholarships, our awards and recognition programs, the annual officer training retreat and the new regional Inter-Professional Leadership Conference for Healthcare and Legal Professions along with our monthly programs and hosting of guest professors.
