This year's AMWA Annual Meeting in San Francisco was a great success with women physicians gathering from around the country to support and celebrate each other.
The featured film was "50/50: Rethinking the Past, Present, and Future of Women + Power" by Tiffany Shlain, Emmy-nominated filmmaker & founder of The Webby Awards. The impactful film explores the 10,000 year history of women and power and what it will take to get to a 5050 world.
This year, we inaugurated Suzanne Leonard Harrison, MD as President and Connie Baum Newman, MD as President-Elect. Dr. Newman is an endocrinologist and physician-scientist and Adjunct Professor of Medicine at New York University School of Medicine and Academic Visitor at the University of Oxford, UK.
It was an honor to be around such inspiring and supportive women. The conference was powerful and inspiring. I highly recommend that if you are a woman in medicine that you join AMWA. Membership is very affordable, but the benefits are priceless.
