Dr. Filer wins Women Leaders in Medicine Award


Our very own Dr. Wanda Filer has been a busy doctor lately.

You may remember that back in September she was named to be the president of the American Academy of Family Physicians. 

And today, she received a  2016 Women Leaders in Medicine Award from the American Medical Student Association (AMSA).

She was in Washington, D.C., today (Friday, April 1) to receive the award at the AMSA’s 66th Annual Convention & Exposition.

According to the AMSA (who received an “impressive” number of nominations this year:

To have been nominated is an honor: It represents the fact that one or more members personally identified you as a source of inspiration, leadership and support during their time in medical training.

AMSA says the nation’s oldest and largest independent association for physicians-in-training, created the award in 2007 “to recognize women physicians and educators who serve as role models and sources of inspiration for women who are currently in their medical training.”

Congrats, Dr. Filer!
