To celebrate International Women’s Day and continued support for transplantation professionals, Women in Transplantation (WIT), an initiative of The Transplantation Society (TTS) is pleased to announce an entirely new way to network, with the launch of what we hope will be a series of educational and mentoring discussions focused on the celebrated movie ‘Picture a Scientist’
We already have initial viewings happening within groups based in Chicago and Omaha for March and April 2021, who will be tweeting their discussion (#WIT). Most exciting is that WIT will provide members with unlimited opportunities for 1 year to watch the movie at no charge, in either a virtual or in-person format (where possible). WIT hopes that this movie will prompt transplant professionals all over the world to share their experiences, and brainstorm successful ways to advance their professional experience (either online or in person, depending on how you choose to view).
Here is what Dr. Anita Chong (Chair of WIT Pillar 1) has to say about the movie:
Dr. Nancy Ascher, WIT Past WIT Steering Committee Chair and Currwent Advisory Board Member, is profiled in a four part documentary series produced by BBC Studios' The Science Unit which premiered globally December 9 2020 on Netflix. The Surgeon's Cut profiles four ground-breaking surgeons from around the world, each with a visionary approach to their craft.
The documentary profiles Dr. Nancy Ascher's journey growing up with an intellectual family, her feminism and the determination she embraced to perfect her craft as a surgeon. Among many other accomplishments, she is the first woman to perform a liver transplant.
