WINS RETREAT: The First WINS Retreat took place in Snowbird, Utah in July 2017. For More information, see below:
WINS held it’s first ever WINS Retreat in the summer of 2017.
2017 was a huge year for women! The largest peaceful activism gathering that has ever occurred in this country was organized, executed and celebrated by women on January 21. A paper has been published demonstrating that women physicians have lower 30 day mortality and readmissions than male physicians1, and Women In Neurosurgery (WINS) held its first ever retreat in beautiful Snowbird, Utah, July 7-9, 2017. Utah is truly nature’s playground. Participants were encouraged to bring their significant others and children, with family activities including include rafting, rock climbing, and campfires with s’mores and options for mountain biking, hiking.
It provided women neurosurgeons, their families and friends, and the community that supports them (including male neurosurgeons and non-neurosurgeons) an opportunity for camaraderie, peer-support, mentorship, leadership training and relaxation unprecedented in a neurosurgical gathering!

Retreat participants were offered opportunity to earn adult and pediatric trauma CME credits by staying for the of the AANS/CNS Joint Section on Neurotrauma and Critical Care satellite meeting in conjunction with the National Neurotrauma Society. During scientific sessions, children could participate in an optional action-packed day camp tailored to their age and interests.
