End-of-the-Year Remarks + Introducing the New E-Board!

Dear Ladybosses (& people who support ladybosses)!

We hope you are all staying safe and healthy during this difficult and untoward time. While this academic year did not end as we expected, we would like to reflect on what we were able to accomplish together this past year. PFWH held several speaker events and our first ever research symposium, planned and hosted the AMWA regional conference, attended the PennHealthX Conference, raised over $3,000 for the American Cancer Society, collected 100+ items of winter clothing for patients at the VA Hospital, made over 500 masks and delivered them to local hospitals, and more. Take a look above to see what else we have done this past year!

We could not be prouder of PFWH and what it stands for. We are a group of strong, compassionate, and driven individuals passionate about gender equity in health care. We am confident that each one of our members will make strong contributions to medicine and continue advocating for the advancement of women.Last, we are excited to announce the PFWH Executive Board for the 2020-2021 academic year! The following individuals have shown exceptional participation and effort in club matters this past year. We have the utmost confidence that they – even under the current circumstances – will use their platform to fulfill our organization’s mission of advocating for equality in medicine and foster a supportive student group.
