Parents & Family Association

The Parents and Family Association supports HWCOM medical students by assisting in the development of activities and programs that enhance the quality of the medical school experience.


Members of the Parent and Family 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.
