Veronica Sudekum, MD
Veronica is enthusiastic about joining the AMWA Resident Division leadership. She graduated from medical school at the University of Virginia, where she was Co-President of UVa’s medical women’s organization, The 1920 Society. Now a resident in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation at Emory University, she is interested in promoting women’s access to sports, recreation, and the outdoors. She is also interested in palliative care. She received a graduate degree from Georgetown University in English Literature, where she worked at the Lannan Center for Poetics and Social Practice with the human rights advocate and poet, Carolyn Forché. This life-changing experience taught her the critical role that artists, religious leaders, and writers play in advancing justice in our world. Reading, hiking, running, camping, and travel are among her favorite pursuits outside the hospital.
