At the commencement of the Health Information Management Association of Australia (HIMAA) 70th anniversary year, HIM-Interchange is celebrating the success of the Health Information Management Awareness Week (HIM Awareness Week) which was launched as an annual event by HIMAA in 2016. In this article, Jenny Gilder, past President of the HIMAA Board, provides her insights into the genesis of the HIM Awareness Week and its significance for the profession. In addition, some of the Health Information Managers (HIMs) that have participated in the event over the past three years have shared their stories about the activities they have organised, how they found the experience, and why they thought it was important to participate.
