Introduction:

 

 

 

 

 



The American Medical Women's Association (AMWA) is an organization of women physicians, students, and other persons dedicated to serving as the unique voice for women's health and the advancement of women in medicine. AMWA functions at the local, national and internationa level and provides and develops leadership, advocacy, education, expertise, mentoring, and strategic alliances.

Description:

This conference will provide the opportunity for pre-medical and medical students to participate in educational and networking sessions that support AMWA's vision to empower women to lead in improving health. Students will learn new skills and gain perspective about advocacy initiatives in human trafficking, maternal health and policy leadership. These different sessions are important for students as they continue their professional development in the field of medicine.

Pre-medical, medical and other health professions students, residents, faculty, and physician leaders from Florida, Georgia, South Carolina, and North Carolina will gather at the FSU College of Medicine to develop connections, share perspectives and build bridges.

This year’s theme is “Raise Your Voice in Medicine." During a pivotal time in our region’s history, women will meet in Florida's capital to discuss challenges, share stories of success, and give advice aligned with AMWA's mission to advance women in medicine and improve women’s health. Speakers include prominent leaders within AMWA, a Chief Medical Officer, Residency Directors, and many others.

Through thought-provoking panel discussions, interactive skills-building workshops, and networking, attendees will gain deeper perspectives on health policy, humanism, public health leadership, and advocacy. With Maya Angelou’s advice in mind, that the "mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive; and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humor, and some style," we aim for attendees to leave feeling more connected, inspired, and grounded.
