The Southeast Chapter of the American Medical Writers Association (AMWA) serves the states of Alabama, Georgia, Mississippi, and Tennessee. The Chapter’s objectives are to raise the standards of practice and achievement in medical communication by:
- Bringing together those persons within the area of the Chapter who are involved in the communication of medical information so that they may share views, experiences, and goals. Such persons include writers, editors, illustrators, publishers, and those active in research, documentation, audiovisual techniques, public relations, and advertising related to the subject of medicine and the life sciences.
- Furthering the professional development of Chapter members through educational programs and certification.
- Promoting high levels of communication by making the Chapter’s educational programs available to all AMWA members and nonmembers.
- Encouraging nonmembers to become members of AMWA and to participate in Chapter activities.
