Welcome!

The Mid-America chapter of the American Medical Writer's Association was founded in 1985. We publish a quarterly newsletter (latest issue Spring 2018) , and hold regular in-person meetings. The Board of Directors also holds regular meetings by teleconference, and minutes of those meetings are available.

Upcoming Chapter Events

TechWriteSTL (St Louis)

Wednesday, May 9th, 11am - Field trip to the St. Louis Art Museum, Forest Park
Maybe you’ve heard of Cahokia, the most sophisticated prehistoric native civilization north of Mexico. But did you know that there were other Native American cultures in our region that predated Cahokia by thousands of years? Join your TechWrite STL friends for a private guided tour of Native American art and archaeology at the St. Louis Art Museum. Our tour will be conducted by Amy Creasy Clark, Senior Research Assistant at the Museum and an anthropologist who specializes in Native American cultures. We will meet in Gallery 113, lower level of the Museum. Our private tour will last about one hour, after which we will have lunch at Panorama Restaurant at the Art Museum.
Parking: Free parking is available on the two lots located across from the Art Museum. There is also an underground parking garage. The usual parking garage fee is $15, but bring your parking ticket to the restaurant and you can get it validated so parking will cost $5.
