AMWA does AMWA [Conference]

This past weekend, six members of AMWA at CESCOM made the journey south to the 70th Annual AMWA Conference, which was being held conveniently in Miami! Our branch may still be in its infancy, but we were welcomed with open arms by the strong ladies of AMWA and have no doubt that we are on track to become a valuable part of this national association. Here are some of the highlights from our trip! 

Right before we had student AMWA Elections! Hopefully next year  we'll have some FAU women on the ballot!

Every table had an experienced physician to help guide our suturing. 

Katie practices her suturing skills on a pig foot.

I was so excited to get a picture of a wisened AMWA woman wounding the pig foot that my finger got in the way.  Also please note the plates and glasses-- Even when suturing up pig feet, AMWA ladies have proper table settings.

Nikki makes sewing pig feet look so glamorous that this photo made a cameo on the Palm Beach Medical Society facebook page!

AMWA brings great joy to medical students with the suturing workshop! 

When you're a first year med student, this finished product gives you the same sense of pride I imagine parents must feel when seeing their offspring voted into the White House.

The biggest thanks to all the members of AMWA who made the conference possible (and for existing). Our small branch is proud to be a part of this organization!
