A room for nursing mothers is private space a nursing mother can use to express milk. This space is shielded from view and free from intrusion of others. Nursing mother’s rooms are functional private spaces with a place to sit and access to an electrical outlet.
Check the campus map features to see if your building has a lactation space.
Baby changing stations are available throughout the University for your convenience. These changing stations are typically mounted on a vertical wall, or on a horizontal surface such as a counter-top. A typical changing station has a changing platform to be folded down to use and a restraining harness to secure the baby for safety.

Elizabeth Fuhriman Gardner Prize
WiHMS facilitates the Elizabeth Fuhriman Gardner Prize each year. The Gardner Prize is awarded to two students, one from the School of Dentistry and another from the Health Sciences (College of Health, College of Nursing, College of Pharmacy, School of Medicine).
WiHMS aims to develop women leaders through learning experiences, mentoring and training that ensures that they earn equal opportunities. WiHMS has provided scholarships and awards for faculty to attend the local UHealth Leadership Seminars. In addition, we support travel awards to faculty members at the AAMC Women Faculty Leadership Development Seminars and one ELAM attendee each year.
For more information about eligibility and the scholarships and travel awards, please follow the links below or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
The ELAM program has been specially developed for senior women faculty at the associate or full professor level who demonstrate the greatest potential for assuming executive leadership positions at academic health centers within the next five years. While attaining higher levels within the AHC executive ranks is the program's primary focus, ELAM encourages its graduates to pursue the full diversity of roles that offer opportunities for leadership within their organizations.
WiHMS and Office for Health Equity, Diveristy, & Inclusion support up to three scholarships per University of Utah Leadership Seminar session (Leadership Seminar I, II, III). This program is interactive and experiential, based on self-assessments that participants will take prior to the seminar. Participants will focus on fundamentals for high performing leaders, managing conflict, managing difficult negotiations, and communicating in an effective and engaging manner. Participants will reflect on their personal leadership style and how different leadership styles can successfully interact with other styles. Attendees who receive the WiHMS scholarships share their insights into leadership in the "Lessons Learned" series.
You are able to register for these Seminars with and without scholarship support from WiHMS. If you are not awarded a scholarship, we recommend you seek support from your home department. Please note that registration for these seminars closes two weeks prior to the session start date.
