The Mississippi State Medical Association hosted a 2019 Women in Medicine celebration in conjunction with the MSMA Annual Session, House of Delegates, Thursday, August 15, 2019, at seven-thirty in the evening at the Westin in Jackson, Mississippi.

We received generous contributions to celebrate the accomplishments of Women in Medicine. These pivotal women in Mississippi have moved the needle forward.  We are fortunate to have so many wonderful women leaders in our state, and their consistent hard work and dedication has had generational impact. We were grateful to highlight their accomplishments.  

Your support has been integral in making this event a success. There are more women in medical school now than ever before.  We are happy to provide an opportunity for women to collaborate, network, and recognize their efforts in our state. Sponsors of this event were featured on a sponsor board, recognized through our social media and e-newsletter communications, and corresponded to our membership. The WIM event was more successful than we could have ever imagined, and we look forward to continuing to honor Women in Medicine in our state moving forward. Special thanks to Dr. Patrice Harris, AMA President and Dr. Claudette Dalton, Chair of AMA Southeastern Delegation, for participating at this special event.
