PFWH Announcements – COVID-19

Dear Penn Future Women in Health,

I am sad to inform you that we must cancel our March events in light of Penn policies pertaining to COVID19. I am working closely with Jackie and will keep you updated as to what will happen for April events. Our primary obligation is to keep you and the community safe and healthy.

AMWA national leadership has decided to move the upcoming AMWA Annual Meeting (March 26-29 in Indianapolis) to a virtual platform. Although I am sad I won’t get to meet the Surgeon General, I am ecstatic to announce that our chapter won a national award –  the “AMWA Branch Event Award” – for our hard work and creativity in organizing events this year! Receiving one of the four national premed awards with over 100 chapters is pretty amazing and I thank you all for your contributions. We did it again!

The online ACS Relay For Life fundraiser will continue until April 3rd, however, the actual Relay For Life event on April 3rd is unlikely to occur. I will keep you posted. Participating in this online fundraiser is a good way to receive member points during this hiatus. Raising $100 for the American Cancer Society will get you 1 volunteering point. We have raised $2,386 and have 23 days left to reach our goal of $4,000!

Wishing you all health and safety. If you run out of hand sanitizer, head over to the LPS office to pick up one of the cute scrubs hand sanitizers from the front desk.

We will get through this!
