AMWA’s 2017 Medical Writing & Communication Conference. AMWA (American Medical Writers Association) is hosting its annual conference on November 1-4, 2017 in Orlando, FL. This year’s theme is “Trends and Opportunities for Medical Communicators.” I’ll be giving an acceptance speech as this year’s winner of the Alvarez Award.
