AMWA Mid-America Chapter



The Mid-America chapter of the American Medical Writer's Association was founded in 1985, and historically serves AMWA members living in the states of Missouri, Kansas, Iowa and Nebraska. We published a quarterly newsletter (latest issue Spring 2023), and hold regular meetings. The Board of Directors holds regular meetings by teleconference, and minutes of those meetings are available.
