The WINM committee is charged with promoting women physicians and scientists in nuclear medicine and molecular imaging; fostering the development of professional interests; addressing problems encountered in the practice of nuclear medicine; promoting leadership and career development in women; raising awareness of scientific contributions of women in nuclear medicine; recognizing the challenges of balancing career and family; promoting fair and equitable treatment; and improving the climate for women in nuclear medicine in all stages of their careers.
Welcome to Women in Nuclear Medicine!
We've made it through challenging times with the COVID-19 pandemic, which has impacted professional women in many ways. Nevertheless, the Women in Nuclear Medicine committee of SNMMI the has continued to work behind the scenes to promote women in nuclear medicine and take part in the issues that matter to us.
The Women in Nuclear Medicine committee was founded in 2014 to promote the advancement of women physicians, scientists, and technologists in nuclear medicine. We continue to support women in our professions by holding special programming at the Annual and Mid-Winter Meeting, including the annual breakfast and CE sessions, by contributing to policies statements about issues impacting women, and more.
Now in my second year as chair of this wonderful group, I believe it is truly is a privilege to help serve as a voice for the women in our specialty. I would love your feedback about issues that are important to you, ways in which we can serve you better, and ideas that you have. Please feel free to reach out to me directly: firstname.lastname@example.org.
