Friends & Family Association

Supporting Medical Students

The Family & Friends Association was established to support medical students’ initiatives as well as their health and wellness through programs like Fit & Well.


Members of the Family & Friends Association learn first-hand about HWCOM news and events, and receive up-to-date information on supporting medical students. Benefits also include networking with other parents of medical students, leadership and volunteer opportunities, invitations to special events (e.g., the Sapphire Gala), and opportunities to share experiences with new medical students and their parents.


Members include parents, spouses, significant others, family members, and friends.
