Woman of the Month Award! MomMD – Connecting Women in Medicine

MomMD wants to honor and acknowledge the strength of women in medicine, and is proud to announce the Woman of the Month Award. There is no prize, just the honor of being selected. You can enter yourself or nominate someone else (if they choose not to be listed, another person may be chosen). If you win, your name, photo (if available) and story will be shared with the thousands of women who visit MomMD each month. Monthly winners will be entered into the MomMD Woman of the Year competition, where MomMD members will have the opportunity to vote for their favorite woman.

1. Your name, age and professional status (i.e. premed, student, doctor, etc).
2. Describe your background, professional and personal.
3. Number and ages of your children
