AMWA Southeast

Welcome to the Southeast Chapter of the American Medical Writers Association (AMWA). Our region comprises AMWA members from Georgia, Tennessee, Mississippi, and Alabama. Our chapter meetings, programs, and conferences are held in Atlanta, Georgia, where you can also find the national headquarters for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, CARE, the Arthritis Foundation, the American Red Cross, and the American Cancer Society. Emory University and many other medical institutions, associations, and services are located here as well.

The AMWA Southeast Chapter typically has six meetings during the academic year. Most meetings involve dinner, an informative lecture or tour, and then a brief discussion of chapter business. Not only are the program topics interesting, it’s fun to meet other people with similar backgrounds and interests. These meetings provide excellent networking opportunities, as our chapter has nearly 200 members from a wide variety of medical communications backgrounds, including members from:

  • Academia
  • Centers for Disease Control and Prevention
  • Non-profits like the American Cancer Society
  • Healthcare information businesses like WebMD
  • Pharmaceutical industry
  • Freelance writers
  • Journalists
  • Editors

Whether you are an experienced medical writer or just starting out, we welcome your membership and participation.
