With the unprecedented changes in response to the COVID-19 pandemic and cancellation of in-person events this spring, WINS hosted several chats on Zoom to help foster dialogue and communication in the WINS community during this time. Our social media platforms helped spread the word, and these chat events were well attended.
The first virtual chat was held on the Zoom platform on April 14 as a happy hour chat in the evening, providing a means for the WINS community to connect and enjoy each other’s virtual company as we celebrate the 30th Anniversary of WINS. The event was well attended by a varied and enthusiastic WINS community group, including members from various locations, women in various practice settings, residents/fellows and students. Breakout rooms allowed smaller groups to share experiences and connect virtually.
The second WINS Chat was held on April 30 and focused on addressing health care provider wellness during a pandemic. With various avenues to “meet” and connect, we hope to see you throughout the year as we celebrate our 30th anniversary!
