American Medical Women’s Association

“The American Medical Women’s Association is an organization that has dedicated itself to advance women in medicine and improve women’s health.”

The American Medical Women’s Association was founded in 1915 in Chicago, Il by Dr. Bertha VanHoosen. This was during a time when there was a very small number of  female physicians in the medical field. This organization is open at the local, state and national level. It has many members, all of which are either physicians, medical students, residents, undergraduate students interested in pursing careers in the medical field, and health care professionals. 

I believe that Rita Levi-Montalcini would definitely join this organization. It is for a good cause, and I think the organization would benefit from her membership. Levi-Montalcini runs an all-female laboratory so she has experience in trying to encourage females to join the scientific world. By being in this organization she would make that even more clear. Science is very important to Rita Levi-Montalcini. AMWA brings together both science and females together so that they can have a greater voice in a field that is currently dominated by males.
