Let the experience of past AMWA ELEVATE participants speak to the value of this program

“I was walking around in a fog not clear in my goals or boundaries. Having clarity about where I’m going and remembering that I need to stick to what serves my goals and objectives was my number one takeaway.”

~ Lina Millan, MD, Associate Professor at the Medical College of Georgia.
“ELEVATE was my first leadership course. I was so impressed with the depth of knowledge I gained. And even though I’ve held many leadership roles, I’ve never had any training. I’m far better able to lead and serve because I have all of the tools now. I feel like a rockstar thanks to ELEVATE.”

~ Simone Wildes, MD, Vice Chair of Infection Prevention Committee at Tufts University School of Medicine
“We had a challenging year at my clinic and ELEVATE became my spine and caused me to really think about who I am. This program is helping me go to the next level both professionally and personally in interactions with people.”

~ Monica Abbi, MD, is a primary care physicians with at MultiCare Health System
