A MESSAGE FROM OUR PREMED PRESIDENT 
Hello AMWA PreMeds, 
 
         It is my pleasure to welcome you back to another fantastic school year! As your undergraduate journey continues, I would like to thank you for allowing AMWA to be a part of your PreMed career. As our division grows, there are numerous opportunities to get involved with nationals. With a strive to create new initiatives, provide mentoring for students, and much more, I am confident that we can find a home for each member within the AMWA student division. Please extend my invitation to other PreMed students to join AMWA at a newly discounted membership rate. I'm looking forward to the growth of our division and am incredibly honored to serve as this year's first PreMed President.
