Celebrate Women in Medicine month with AMA Insurance

September 04, 2018

AMAI_Wim-September-Blog.png Women are a crucial segment of the physician workforce. To honor their accomplishments, AMA Insurance recognizes Women in Medicine (WIM) month this September. WIM serves to showcase the accomplishments of women physicians, as well as highlight advocacy related to women physicians and health issues impacting women patients. This year’s theme is “Celebrating Our Legacy, Embracing Our Future.”

Celebrate with AMA throughout the month as we commemorate women in medicine and bring visibility to women’s health issues.

Participate in the second-ever Women in Medicine Day on September 6. Show your support for women in medicine by posting photos of yourself at work or in the classroom using the hashtag #WIMMonth.

Sign up for the AMA Women in Medicine webinar, “Sex and Gender Differences in Medicine” on Sept. 25 at noon Central time. Vivian Pinn, MD, Senior Scientist Emerita, Fogarty International Center and Founding Director (Retired) of Office of Research on Women’s Health, National Institute of Health, and Neelum Aggarwal, MD, AMA Women Physicians Section Chair, will share insights on sex and gender differences in medical education, medical practice and research.

Women physicians will be honored through the Inspirational Physicians Recognition Program and the 2018 winner of the Joan F. Giambalvo Fund for the Advancement of Women will be awarded on September 12.
