Welcome to Our New Leaders!
AMWA congratulates the new president-elect, secretary, and four members-at-large on their election to the 2023 – 2024 Board of Directors.
Our newly elected Board members are diverse in age, race, ethnicity, medical specialty, geography and career, and life experience — and they are all extraordinary women leaders with compelling personal and professional histories and perspectives.
We are incredibly fortunate, as a community and as an organization to have access to the energies and commitment of these dynamic, accomplished, inspired and empathetic women physicians — each of whom as firm aspirations for AMWA and for what they want to accomplish for our organization.
