AFFIRM:

Advocates for Females in Research and Medicine (AFFIRM) at UVA is a group of MD/PhD students with the goal of educating members about inequalities women in research and medicine face and generating educational and networking experiences for students to help overcome these obstacles. The purpose of this year’s symposium is to bring together advocates (male and/or female) for women in science and medicine (from across many disciplines) to facilitate discussion of challenges, goals, tools, and opportunities women face in science and medicine. We hope that by including participants from across medical, graduate, and nursing education we can have in depth conversations and facilitate connections across these disciplines.
