The Northern California Chapter is one of twenty regional chapters of the American Medical Writers Association. With almost 250 members in Northern California, Nevada, and Hawaii, it has been an active and thriving chapter for over twenty years. AMWA members are an integral part of Northern California's large and dynamic medical products industry, as well as its eminent medical research and medical education communities.
If you live within our geographic area, you are automatically added to our chapter membership when you join the national organization. If you would like to learn more about our chapter and opportunities to become more involved, please contact our President Maggie Norris.
