Hurricane Harvey Relief
Dear AMWA,

In the wake of Hurricane Harvey, many families and neighborhoods in southeast Texas are facing unprecedented levels of damage. The process of rebuilding Houston, San Antonio, Galveston, Corpus Christi, and other towns along the Texas coast has begun, but this journey will take years as we work to replace damaged infrastructure. There are many relief organizations that are diligently working to aid in recovery efforts in some of the most affected areas, and I have identified several organizations with community-specific ties. We call upon you in our time of need and please know that any donation made is so deeply appreciated by our communities. If you have any questions, please feel free to email me at

Warmest Regards,
Anjali Raghuram
Program Chair I Baylor College of Medicine AMWA

Meet our Officers: Taylor Goss
Taylor is our newly promoted president-elect for the Pre-Medical Division. She currently is a senior at the University of Central Florida completing two bachelors degrees: one in Biomedical Sciences and the other in Health Sciences with a Psychology minor. She aims to pursue a Masters in Public Health focusing on Health Policy and Promotion, later planning on completing her Medical Doctorate and specializing in a procedural specialty such as surgery, OBGYN, or emergency medicine. As a physician, she hopes to contribute to public health policy while continuing to practice in a hospital setting. Taylor decided to join AMWA because "throughout my undergraduate experience, there were always very subtle behaviors and comments that made me realize that women were not treated as equally in science - and specifically in medicine - as they should be. This drove my passion for becoming involved with such an organization. Since joining AMWA, I have learned so many valuable leadership skills but I have also found such a wonderful, cultivating and supportive environment within my AMWA community". In her free time, she enjoys running a small photography company and working on her blog, Moments in Med!

When asked for advice she would give to younger women, she replied "My biggest piece of advice for other premedical students is: do your research! And by that I don't mean get a lab position somewhere. I mean learn everything you can about the medical profession, what it's like to be a medical student, and everything that goes into becoming a medical student and subsequently a physician. Knowing the ins and outs of the entire process will help you to become much more organized and prepared for what is to come. It might even remind you of why you're doing this."

If she were to meet any iconic woman in history, it would be: "Rosalind Franklin because I feel as though she really fought for her place as a woman in a very male dominated field at the time."

Taylor is a great member of our team, and we are lucky to have her!
