Women in Medicine Month 2020
Leading the Way: Women at the forefront of healthcare and medicine
Beginning September 1, the Department of Medicine will continue its tradition of celebrating the American Medical Association’s Women in Medicine Month. This year we will highlight women who are making a remarkable impact on three matters at the forefront on healthcare: the COVID-19 pandemic; diversity, equity, and inclusion; and patient care.
We invite you to follow along as we recognize the accomplishments of 30 exceptional women who are driving meaningful change and transforming the fields of healthcare and medicine.
