Millennium Fellowship Project: American Medical Women’s Association at the University of California, Berkeley

The American Medical Women’s Association (AMWA) at the University of California, Berkeley advocates for women all over the world. We work to progress gender equity, promote women’s health, and provide a platform for voices to be heard and transform ideas into realities. To further advance gender equity and women’s health in Berkeley’s community, we partner with multiple UC Berkeley student organizations so we can amplify the goals of these organizations. We hope to build relationships with city organizations outside of the university so we can help more women and young girls around the city.
