During the week of February 10-14, the premedical division of AMWA is hosting a week-long campaign in honor of International Day of Women and Girls in Science (Feb 11)! All branches are HIGHLY encouraged to participate; branches who participate will have their photos featured at the conference in Indianapolis!

 

To participate, please carefully read the instructions on the flyer. If your branch does not want to make its own STEMinist posters, feel free to use the [5] posters we have provided .

 

You can post your campaign photos to your personal accounts, branch accounts, and/or regional accounts. To post to regional accounts, please email your campaign photos to me (your regional director). In addition to posting your branches’ campaign photos to social media, please also email your campaign photos to advocacy@amwa-premed.org in order to be featured at the conference!

 

We can’t wait to see what you all come up with! Thank you for your interest and participation!

 

Best,
