WIMS Work-Life Balance Survey: The Work-Life Balance subcommittee of the Women in Medicine and Science (WIMS) Standing Committee has been considering the importance of well-articulated work-life balance policies in support of our strategic goal to Make this a Great Place to Work, Learn, and Discover. 
We would like your opinions on the following work-life balance issues at WFBMC.
The Survey should take about 5 minutes to complete. Participation is voluntary, and the survey information will be kept anonymous and confidential. Please only complete the survey once. (available internally only)

The Office of Women in Medicine and Science (OWIMS) is seeking Abstract submissions for Women’s Health and Sex Differences Research Day.  The title of the event is “The Gender Gap: Pain  & Addiction” and it will be held on April 6th, 2017, at the Bowman Gray Center for Medical Education. Abstracts are  due by December 16, 2016.
All faculty, students (medical, graduate, PA, and other), medical residents and post-doctoral fellows are encouraged to submit abstracts (new or recycled) for consideration for oral or poster presentation. While all women’s health and sex differences abstracts are encouraged, special consideration will be given for submissions with specific focus on pain or addiction.  The top 5 Abstracts will be selected for a 5 minute oral presentation during the afternoon between 2-2:30pm on April 6th. Prizes will be awarded for the top oral presentation, top student poster and top resident/post-doctoral student poster (faculty submissions not eligible for prizes).
