AMWA is a participant of National Physician Suicide Awareness (NPSA) Day, an initiative founded by the Council of Residency Directors (CORD) in Emergency Medicine. Learn more about NPSA Day in this 9 minute podcast.
To raise awareness on September 17, AMWA will host an annual Twitter #Light4Docs campaign to encourage physicians, students, and supporters worldwide to light candles that will help to raise awareness of physician suicide. In addition, AMWA will launch a Shining a Light campaign to highlight the work of women physicians in this area. We encourage you to highlight the work of leaders in your community.
