Oregon Chapter Wins 2020 John Tooker Evergreen Award
The John Tooker Evergreen Awards Program provides recognition and visibility to chapters that have successfully implemented programs to increase membership, improve communication, increase member involvement, enhance diversity, foster careers in internal medicine and improve management of the chapter. The Oregon Chapter received a 2020 John Tooker Evergreen Award for their initiative, Women in Medicine Month Social Media Campaign/Initiative.
Oregon: Women in Medicine Month Social Media Campaign/Initiative
Building on the success of social media to foster physician learning, teaching, mentoring, role modeling, and connectivity in new and novel ways, the Oregon Chapter dedicated their Twitter feed and Facebook posts to Women in Medicine Month and highlighted a breadth and depth of women in medicine topics, both inside and outside of Oregon, resulting in more member engagement, both in knowledge and in the volunteer hours spent developing the social media posts.

The award recognizes truly extraordinary chapters that surpass excellence in chapter management. We are in the company of 32 other outstanding chapters.
