Women in Transplantation Update

02 01

The Women in Transplantation initiative of the TTS is proud to mark 2019 as the ten-year anniversary of our creation by then TTS President, Kathryn Wood. To mark ten successful years, WIT is pleased to announce a very full calendar year of activities, including networking events that will be held at ATC, ASHI, IXA, ABTO, ATW, ITS and ISODP. More details of these events will be highlighted in the Tribune Pulse and sent to WIT and TTS members with opportunity to RSVP for each event. Our 2019 networking events will also feature new partnerships with international transplant societies and communities of practice and focus on highlighting the accomplishments of your peers in the evolving field of transplantation.

Our ten-year anniversary will also mark the launch of a new WIT website that will feature publications and review articles that members of our Steering Committee have been diligently working on. These publications will continue to shed light on issues of gender and sex issues in transplantation research, patient care and advocacy. The website will also include a new women speaker database, this feature will help foster diversity in scientific programming at international transplant congresses with an easy to search list of leaders in the transplant field.

Lastly, none of these initiatives would be possible without the ongoing support of our corporate partners. WIT is pleased to partner with Novartis, Veloxis and One Lambda to support our 2019 and 2020 initiatives.
