Amalia Bay

Student Division Program Chair

As a medical student at the Warren Alpert Medical School (AMS) of Brown University in the dual degree Primary Care and Population Medicine MD/ScM program, having served in a variety of AMWA leadership roles, I’m dedicated to creating more spaces for supporting women in medicine. I guided a large northeast conference committee of colleagues from across the to ensure satisfaction of the interests of the projected 150+ attendees! I helped to revive the Harvard Medical School and Geisel School of Medicine’s branches, thereby increasing strength in numbers of our network. Locally, on the Brown board of the AMS Latinx Medical Student Association (LMSA) I facilitated the connection with AMWA for Latinx History Month to create a platform for conversations about unjust care for Latina [women] patients. I initiated a program at a local underserved middle school for students URiM, which aims to reduce the intersectional issues that add to the already difficult burden for women in medicine. I am grateful for the opportunity to have collaborated with AMWA in so many different capacities and look forward to continuing to illuminate our network by innovating strategies to unite our regions.
