ELAM Program 25th Anniversary Celebration

Postponement Notice

It is with much regret that we are postponing our 25th anniversary celebration – scheduled to take place on May 1 – due to the COVID-19 outbreak. Many of our guests are under institutional travel restrictions. Additionally, we want to act in the best interest of public health by not hosting a large gathering.

We are grateful for all of the thought, time and resources our supporters have extended thus far. Please know that the event will be just as wonderful when we host it – tentatively on April 23, 2021 – and we hope you will be able to participate then. More details will follow soon.

ELAM is a core program of the Institute for Women's Health and Leadership at Drexel University College of Medicine, Philadelphia, Pa. The Institute continues the legacy of advancing women in medicine that began in 1850 with the founding of the Female Medical College of Pennsylvania, the nation's first women's medical school and a predecessor of today's Drexel University College of Medicine.
