Join Us for the 2017 First-ever WINS Retreat!
2017 is 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 is planning on having its first ever retreat in beautiful Snowbird, Utah, July 7-9, 2017!
We hope to provide 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!
We strongly encourage women to bring their significant others and children! We further encourage program directors and department chairs to attend. Family activities include rafting, rock climbing, and campfires with s’mores. Mountain biking, hiking and myriad other options are also available.
Retreat participants interested in earning up to 36 AMA-PRA-1 adult and pediatric trauma CME credits can stay for the duration of the AANS/CNS Joint Section on Neurotrauma and Critical Care satellite meeting in conjunction with the National Neurotrauma Society.
