I would like to remind you of the opportunity to attend the Region 5 American Medical Women’s Association (AMWA) Conference at the University of Alabama at Birmingham. Region 5 includes those medical schools with AMWA chapters in Alabama, Louisiana, Mississippi, Tennessee, Puerto Rico, and abroad.
AMWA is an organization committed to advancing women in medicine, and this conference will bring together pre-medical students, medical students, residents, and physicians from Alabama, Louisiana, Mississippi, Tennessee, Puerto Rico, and abroad. The agenda includes a lunch and lecture series Friday afternoon, a networking charity auction Friday night, and poster presentations, workshops, and a capstone lecture Saturday morning.
The conference, which will take place on February 15-16, 2019, will be a great opportunity to build bridges and develop connections among members of these different chapters. In addition, there will be an opportunity to present your research poster. This is a fantastic way to showcase any work you would like to present and will look great on your resume! Abstracts are due January 4, 2019 by 11:59pm CST.
