Will you attend the 2022 AMWA Annual Conference on November 2–5 in Denver, Colorado?

Each year, the American Medical Writers Association (AMWA) holds the Medical Writing and Communication Conference — an event offering unique educational and networking opportunities. It is open to all medical communicators, regardless of membership!

When I decided to pursue medical writing last year, one of my first steps was joining AMWA. One of the advantages of being an AMWA member is getting a registration discount for every Medical Writing and Communication Conference.

I planned to attend last year’s conference because it was going to be in Chicago (my former hometown). Unfortunately, the pandemic did not slow down as expected, and a virtual event took place instead. In the end, things did not work out for me, so I had to withdraw.

This year, however, is different because the event is taking place in Colorado, one of the three states — along with Utah and Wyoming — that are part of the AMWA Rocky Mountain Chapter. As you may already know, I have been serving as Director of Events for my chapter since last fall.

Therefore, I could not miss this opportunity!

Last week, I booked the flights and the hotel in downtown Denver. I was fortunate to find a hotel that is only a 5-minute walk from the conference venue. And today, I purchased my ticket and selected the following sessions that I plan to attend:

  • Copyright 101 — A Practical Guide to Properly Reusing and Sharing Published Information

  • Nonclinical Regulatory Writing for Biologics — Case Study of a Regulatory Submission for Emergency Approval of a SARS-CoV-2 Monoclonal Antibody Treatment

  • Fighting Burnout at Home — The Hidden Value of Health Habits

  • Consistency in Regulatory Documents: Writing & Managing

  • DIY Graphics for Medical Writers

  • A Medical Writer’s Guide to Using Master Protocols

  • Beyond Words — Learn How to Use Visuals for Effective Patient Education

  • Yoga at Your Desk — A Journey Through the Subtle Energy Spine

  • Marketing your Writing Practice

Because this is my first time at the AMWA Annual Conference, I will be at the “New to AMWA and Conference Session,” as well as other events, such as the meet and greet, a few networking events, and my regional chapter dinner.

Unless the pandemic slows down considerably, I am considering using the yellow sticker (i.e., limited contact) to help reduce the risk of COVID-19 transmission during the event. Still, I look forward to meeting many of you in person and getting to know many others!

I know two of my fellow medical writers will be presenting at the event:

  • Abigale Miller, MSc — the host of The Anthill, a space where medical writers help each other by gathering for brainstorming sessions, informal coffee breaks, and work sprints.

  • Sophie Ash, BSc (Hons) — the owner of Prospology, a business coaching service for new and emerging freelance medical writers who want to succeed in their careers.
