The idea for this exhibition was conceived during the AMWA Interim Meeting of 2009. On a visit to the National Constitution Center in Philadelphia, I was inspired by an interactive exhibit on American heroes – a montage of faces floating across the screen, which when touched, would pause to reveal the story behind the photograph. I thought of AMWA and the extraordinary women physicians who have led this organization over the past century – and the need for their stories to be shared.

Three years later, in 2012, we were proud to launch Faces of AMWA, a celebration of the past, present, and future of women leaders in medicine. We are deeply grateful for the volunteer researchers who have helped and continue to help with the biographical documentation of early AMWA physicians and to Joe Hadley for the development and design of the exhibition.
