Drs. Frogner and Green honored with Excellence in Mentoring Women Faculty Award

Deciding to pursue a career in healthcare is no easy feat — and it can be even harder to advance if you don’t have someone to advise and advocate for you. A story in The Huddle tells of two UW Medicine women — Yolanda Evans, MD, and Bianca Frogner, PhD — who are making mentorship in medicine a priority, and how they became notable mentors to other women in medicine.

Nominated by their mentees and peers, Evans and Frogner are the recipients of the 2023 Excellence in Mentoring Women Faculty Award, an ongoing project by the Committee on Women in Medicine and Sciencewhich honors their commitment to cultivating thriving partnerships with their mentees and their dedication to making mentorship matter.
