Im’s most outstanding contribution to nursing research is a program that adopts computer and mobile technologies to eliminate gender and ethnic disparities. She has taken the lead in this new field and her current studies are among the first of their kind to use these technologies to build nursing knowledge. Im has integrated this line of work with research projects on breast cancer survivorship, cancer pain, menopausal symptoms and physical activity. She has numerous national and international awards, including the 2014 International Nurse Researcher Hall of Fame Award from Sigma Theta Tau International.
