The Foundation Today

What's Next

Today, the Foundation has evolved to a national level and
supports several key programs that facilitate the preservation and
promotion of the history of women in medicine.

Connecting the past to the present is what keeps history relevant
and what allows us to build a better future.

The most prestigious of these is the Alma Dea Morani Award.
Presented each year to a woman who has left a significant mark on
history and pivotally advanced our future, the award recognizes
the leaders who are still writing history.
Past recipients include Mary-Claire King, PhD; Catherine D.
DeAngelis, MD, MPH; Margaret Hamburg, MD; and Barbara
Barlow, MD, FACS - among 20 others.
The award is now presented in partnership with the New York
Academy of Medicine. "We're pleased to have another like-minded
partner in the Foundation in that we both recognize and celebrate
the immense contributions of women in medicine and how we
work toward building equity in health," said Judith A. Salerno,
MD, MS, president of NYAM.

That's why the Foundation is committed to promoting that history
through content. It allows us to share the stories of those who forged
the path so that the leaders of tomorrow know they are part of a
much bigger story.
The Foundation looks forward to writing content in collaboration
with PCMS on topics of interest and featuring the accomplishments
and perspectives of women physicians and scientists here in the greater
Philadelphia community.
If you are looking for connections to the women who shaped
the medical field, subscribe to the Foundation newsletter at www.

at admin@wimlf.org. *

In addition to the award, the Foundation has established an oral
history series that documents the lives of each of these awardees.
This is a unique opportunity for these women to share their story
in their own words and for future generations to listen to them tell
it. Housed at the Countway Library of Medicine, this collection
is searchable by researchers and the public.
The Foundation also partners with the Harvard Countway
Library, specifically the Archives for Women in Medicine, to offer
a fellowship to support focused research on the history of women
in medicine. The stature of this fellowship has elevated over the
years, now attracting professional researchers who have used their
findings to support books and other major works.
These and other programs-such as our student scholarship
award, processing grant, and annual fellow lectureship-will
continue to keep the Foundation relevant and forward looking in
our approach to promoting women in medicine and the medical
sciences.
