American Medical Women's Association (AMWA)
AMWA is dedicated to the advancement of women in medicine and to improving women's health via advocacy for women in the legal, social, and educational realms. AMWA provides a voice and an outlet for us as future physicians to make an impact on our role as professionals within our national healthcare system, as well as the health and well-being of all our patients, especially the unique concerns for women. The goals for advocacy are focused on three principles: awareness, discussion, and action.

The EVMS Chapter of AMWA hosts a yearly domestic violence training for anyone who wants to learn how to advocate for victims and stand against domestic violence, as community members and as healthcare providers. AMWA certifies that those on this list have completed the two 2-hour training sessions and all other requirements.
In Memory of Nancy Kelly, MD19
Nancy brought an incredible light to AMWA and to everyone she met, and her enthusiasm for community service and medicine was unstoppable. She will be dearly missed and always remembered by all of us at AMWA.
