It has been my greatest pleasure serving as your Secretary this year. Thank you for allowing me the privilege of updating you on all things AMWA with our monthly Newsflash. I hope you found them informative, helpful, and inspiring. I wish you all good luck on the Match, Step 1, Step 2, and the rest of your medical school careers. Enjoy the journey... and please take advantage of all AMWA can offer you as you begin your careers in the most amazing profession there is.
