Women in Transplantation Steering

As the number of women transplant professionals increases exponentially, there is an ever increasing need for today’s women to provide support and guidance to future generations of transplant professionals. This TTS initiative looks to create and cultivate the relationships necessary to enable today’s women to reach their full potential in the field of transplantation.

The WIT initiative had their own website. Visit for more details.
