Let’s Celebrate Women in Medicine Month

Sep 01, 2017

The American Medical Association’s (AMA) Women Physicians Section (WPS) hosts Women in Medicine Month each September to acknowledge pioneering women, celebrate their accomplishments, and help cultivate future women physicians. AAPM&R is joining the celebration! Within physiatry, there are thousands of female physiatrists leading in their practices and institutions, and impacting the lives of their patients. Throughout the month of September, we’ll be highlighting the brilliant work of our members, and we hope you join us.

The 2017 theme for #WIMmonth is “Women in Medicine: Born to Lead,” and September 7 is the AMA-WPS Women in Medicine Day. Join the celebration—there are lots of ways to participate. Learn how here.

Visit the Academy’s social media pages to follow the buzz. Follow and use the #WIMmonth hashtag on social media. Share who inspires you, what it means to be a woman in medicine, a personal story or more.

To our women physiatrist members, thank you for leadership and commitment to the field of physiatry. Your work is advancing the impact of our specialty.
