The UVA Committee on Women in Medicine and Science (COWIMS) Woman of the Month feature is a once monthly series designed to highlight a UVA School of Medicine woman faculty member. Nominations are open year-round, and can be submitted using this link. While the number of full-time women faculty has increased significantly in the last 13 years, there is still much work to be done to achieve gender equity in academic medicine. Nominate the outstanding women in your department to honor their hard work!
