The American Medical Women's Association (AMWA) recently concluded the 2023-24 academic year with "Blossoms & Benefits," an afternoon of recognition, reflection and philanthropy. Held at NEOMED, the event served as a testament to the organization's commitment to fostering leadership, supporting women's health and giving back to the community.

Central to the evening's festivities was the opportunity to raise donations for WomenSafe Inc., the Green House, an organization dedicated to providing resources and support for women in need. Members and attendees generously contributed to this worthy cause, demonstrating AMWA's dedication to making a tangible difference in the lives of local women.

Highlighting the event were the awards presented to outstanding members for their exemplary contributions and leadership within the organization. Among the honorees were:

  • Amanda Alejo (M2) - Recognized for her remarkable dedication and significant impact on future women healthcare workers, Amanda received the "Greatest Impact on Future Women Healthcare Workers" award. Additionally, she was commended for her exceptional leadership as the "Outstanding AMWA Committee Chair."

  • Allison Losco (M1) - Recognized for her amazing efforts in community outreach, Allison was presented with the award for "Outstanding M1 in Community Outreach," highlighting her dedication to making a positive impact beyond the confines of the organization.

The awards not only underscored the individual achievements of these members but also exemplified AMWA's philosophy of empowerment, collaboration and service. Collectively, each has made substantial contributions to the advancement of AMWA's mission, enriching the community at large.

The event also served as an opportunity for AMWA members to come together to celebrate a successful year, in which participants had the opportunity to participate in bracelet making, flower pot decorating and planting succulents.

The "Blossoms & Benefits" end-of-year party not only marked the culmination of another successful year for the American Medical Women's Association but also served as a wonderful opportunity to recognize the achievements of our leadership team and support an amazing local nonprofit organization, WomenSafe, Inc.
