AMWA is a leading advocate for women’s health and research.
AMWA works to bring under-addressed issues to the national agenda. AMWA is an active participant in setting national health care policy and influencing legislation on women’s health issues. During AMWA’s advocacy day on Capitol Hill, we convene in Washington D.C. to discuss the year’s most important topics with our legislators.
