AMWA to Produce Short Film on Women Physicians in World War I
At Home and Over There: American Women Physicians in World War I
June 2017 marked the 100th anniversary of the American Women’s Hospitals Service (AWHS), a program of AMWA that provided women physicians the opportunity to share in the nation’s efforts during World War I. In honor of AWHS, AMWA is producing a short film that celebrates the patriotism of early 20th century women physicians who overcame significant barriers to “do their part” for the war. Learn more in our on-line exhibition, Women Physicians in World War I. Donate to support the film and the ongoing global health work of AWHS. Donations of any amount will help, and donations of $500 or more will be recognized by tier in the film credits (donate by October 20, 2017). Donations are tax deductible.
Donate by sending a check to AMWA, 1100 E. Woodfield Rd, #350, Schaumburg, IL 60173 (indicate WWI in the memo).
