This year we have seen an increasing interest by individuals, groups and organizations to support WiSA related activities. There has also been interest in supporting and mentoring female trainees in medical school and in surgery. We would like to thank our current partners for their continued support this year- the Association of Women Surgeons (AWS) and The Royal College of Surgeons of Ireland (RCSI) in their provision of travel grants to the annual WiSA event and COSECSA scientific conference this year.
