It has been my honor to act as your medical student division secretary for the past year! I've had the opportunity to interact with some of the most amazing women, share the work you all do to advocate for women in medicine, and in true AMWA fashion, you all have consistently impressed me with all that you do as AMWA student members! 

I sincerely appreciate the opportunity and wish the very best for all of you as you continue your medical training!

Thank you again and I hope to see many of you in San Francisco!

With Warmest Regards,
Kia B. O'Neal
