National Women Physicians Day 2017: Social Media Contest

| Monday, Jan 09, 2017

We want to hear your white coat story. 

National Women Physicians Day

In the weeks leading up to NWPD we will be accepting submissions from anyone with a story to tell about your experience as a woman physician.

You have the option write about yourself or another. Sometimes the best way to show gratitude is to honor a female physician who has inspired your career. Entrants are not required to be female physicians, but all submissions must address the week’s theme. 

You may enter the contest in one of the following ways:

Post a video, status, or captioned photo to Facebook or Instagram using the hashtags #NWPD #IAmBlackwell and #WomenDocsInspire. You must ‘like’ or ‘follow’ the Medelita Facebook or Instagram account and tag Medelita in the post.

Write a short story, poem, essay, or other creative media (video, photo, artwork, etc) and email submissions to
