This month for AMWA marks spectacular advances for mentorship. As a team of leaders and members, we have published Volume 1 of AMWA's Linda Brodsky Memorial Journal. Further, our national team has been hard at work creating a fantastic mentorship database which will debut soon! In addition, Resident On Call continues to run smoothly (check out our insightful June Resident On Call responses from Parin Patel). Bringing us even more fantastic mentorship opportunities is the upcoming Interim Meeting on September 27-28 in Fort Lauderdale. Cheers to all working towards strengthening these fantastic opportunities! As always, feel free to contact AMWA leadership to get involved!

Resident On Call 
Personalized Q&A with AMWA Residents!

Read our June Resident on Call on the AMWA blog

Resident On Call is a new AMWA program that brings together AMWA's resident and medical student divisions. Every month, an AMWA resident will be taking questions from all AMWA medical students. All questions will be screened and those chosen for "Resident On Call" will be answered through the AMWA blog.

July's Resident On Call is: Anna Lee

Anna Lee, MD, MPH is a graduate of Mercer University School of Medicine in Macon, GA and Emory Rollins School of Public Health in Atlanta, GA.  She will be starting her preliminary medicine intern year at the Medical Center of Central Georgia and then moving to SUNY Downstate in Brooklyn, NY to complete her residency in radiation oncology.  She has a particular research interest in psychosocial factors affecting quality of life in cancer patients receiving radiation and has been actively involved in her local AMWA chapter throughout medical school.
