AMWA's 98th annual meeting a huge success

AMWA's 98th annual meeting in New York City was an unparalleled success! The speaker roster featured America's most accomplished physicians, all leaders within their field. We were sold out at this packed event which featured top-quality CME sessions, mentoring programs and 50 poster presentations. Dr. Michelle Bachelet pediatrician, mother and past president of Chile, now Undersecretary General and Executive Director of UN Women was our keynote speaker at the Annual Awards Luncheon in the historic Villard Ballroom of the New York Palace. Other highlights included the dinner dance cruise around Manhattan on the Yacht Infinity for AMWA's 98th Anniversary Gala.

Comments from both our speakers and attendees captured the energy and enthusiasm our meeting generated:

"This year's AMWA's meeting surpassed all my expectations. Not only did we hear from women physician leaders in many fields, but what we heard was the most sophisticated, cutting edge medicine advances. No matter what field you practice in, you had to be engaged, excited and enthused as I was!"

"I felt as if I had a whole new sisterhood, and look forward to participating at next year's meeting in Washington."

"Amazing spirit among all these women of power and privilege and a goodness of life ... So many of the young women I spoke with are filled with zeal and promise. They will be teaching us very soon enough!"

"I fully intend to be much more involved w AMWA based on what I saw!" "Thanks also for the wonderful work AMWA is doing on behalf of women in medicine!"
