For Your Informatics Podcast https://www.amia.org/women-amia-initiativewas created by and for members to inform and inspire the informatics community towards action around opportunities for women in AMIA to improve health and healthcare. As a part of this mission, in 2018 champions of the Women in AMIA initiative, Drs. Wendy Chapman, Jessie Tenenbaum, Deepti Pandita, Merida Johns, and Laurie Griggs, started the Women in AMIA (WIA) Podcast. The WIA Podcast was an outlet to share opportunities for women in AIMA, to promote equal opportunity and treatment of women in biomedical informatics, and to increase the number of women in the biomedical informatics pipeline.
Now, renamed ‘For Your Informatics’ Podcast where we explore the limitless world of medical informatics. ‘For Your Informatics’ Podcast is still led by the Women in AMIA and showcases talented individuals at all career stages and share paths to reveal the limitless and diverse world of biomedical and health informatics professions and its diverse voices to inspire greatness in the field. We recognize that women are not the only underrepresented group in AMIA or biomedical informatics, and the podcast content is valuable to everyone. While the podcast remains produced by women, we hope to capture the interest of all people interested in the informatics world.
Our core values are inclusivity, diversity, education, and leadership. Our mission is to attract people from underrepresented groups into the biomedical informatics field, to create podcasts that can be used in multipurpose settings, to add underrepresented groups to the AMIA/biomedical informatics pipeline, and to teach practical aspects of biomedical informatics.
