ScholarRx Announces Partnership with the American Medical Women’s Association (AMWA)
LOUISVILLE, Ky., April 13, 2021 — ScholarRx today announced a new partnership with AMWA, the American Medical Women’s Association, which for over a century has been committed to the advancement of women in medicine.
As a part of this partnership, AMWA becomes a charter member of ScholarRx’s Medical Student Alliance for Global Education, or MeSAGE. MeSAGE empowers student organizations with the tools and expertise to build medical educational content that is often missing from the standard curriculum.
This partnership will focus on developing curriculum on platforms that are critical to AMWA, including but not limited to:
- Gender equity
- Health equity
- Global health
Along with helping to drive and develop this curriculum, AMWA members will be granted access to these materials through the Rx Bricks digital learning system developed by ScholarRx.
AMWA’s president, Nicole Sandhu, MD, PhD, states, “We are very excited to partner with ScholarRx and to become a charter member of MeSAGE, a wonderful initiative providing much-needed tools and expertise to build education content in areas of critical importance. This will help support our medical students’ education, and is in alignment with AMWA’s mission, vision, and values. We are delighted to see this well-aligned partnership come to fruition and so proud of our students.”
Dr. Tao Le, founder and CEO of ScholarRx, comments, “Through MeSAGE, we are excited to partner with AMWA to address deep education needs at a global level and to help medical students define, build, and learn the key content that may be missing from the standard curriculum.”
