The Florida International University Herbert Wertheim College of Medicine chapterof AMWA was proud to host the Second Annual Mentoring Event/Social Mixer on April27th,2012. Dr. Carolyn Runowicz (the Executive Associate Dean for Academic Affairs atFlorida International University Herbert Wertheim College of Medicine) kindly hostedthe event at her beautiful home on Fisher Island in Miami, FL. We invited our AMWAmembers to celebrate our accomplishments as an organization and to meet and networkwith local physicians and professors associated with FIU. We were also privileged tohave Dr. Farzanna Haffizulla, the current president of the South Florida AMWA chapter,and Dr. Diana Galindo, a former national AMWA president at our event. This was agreat opportunity for our members to find strong, female mentors and fosterrelationships that may last a lifetime. It was a wonderful experience for our membersand affiliates and we look forward to hosting another successful social celebration ofwomen in medicine next year.
