AMWA’s documentary, At Home and Over There: American Women Physicians in World War I had its U.S. Premiere at the French Embassy in Washington, DC

The event, which was attended by many AMWA leaders and colleagues, also featured another film, The American in Paris: The True Story of the American Hospital of Paris in WWI.  The film screenings were followed by a joint Q&A with panelists John Crawford (Vice-Chairman of the Board of Governors, American Hospital of Paris), Marshall Waiss (Chairman of the Board of Governors, American Hospital of Paris), Dr. Eliza Chin (AMWA Executive Director), and Mollie Marr (AMWA OHSU Branch President).

At Home and Over There tells the incredible story of American women physicians who served during the First World War despite widespread discrimination.  Driven by patriotism and a desire to serve, these unsung heroines worked in hospitals, dispensaries, canteens, and ambulance units both during the war and in the years that followed.
