ABWP Speakers Bureau

The Association of Black Women Physicians has expert speakers who are available to educate you on almost any medical or health care-related subject. The purpose of this service is to increase public awareness and enhance community education related to health and wellness issues.

Information for Speakers Bureau Participants

Want to help the Association of Black Women Physicians spread its message about the power of health and wellness? Are you an ABWP member with speaking or teaching experience, or with a strong desire to build such experience? If so, the Speakers Bureau is perfect for you. You’ll gain exposure to new audiences, hone your presentation skills, and contribute to the health, wellness and empowerment of our community.

SPEAKER SUPPORT & RESPONSIBILITIES
The ABWP supports Speakers Bureau participants by matching them up with speaking opportunities and assisting with presentation materials. The ABWP also provides access to the Speakers Bureau Resource Library, which contains sample PowerPoint slides as well as support materials for topics, such as lists of resources that can be distributed to attendees to extend the participants’ learning beyond the presentation.

On a case by case basis, speakers may request reimbursement for travel expenses associated with speaking at an approved event. While the ABWP will make sure the event organizer is aware of these conditions, it is up to the speaker to make sure they are written into the speaker contract.

JOIN THE SPEAKERS BUREAU
If you’re an ABWP member and would like to join the Speakers Bureau, please complete a Speaker Application Form.  All applications are reviewed by the ABWP Executive board. 

OTHER WAYS TO HELP
The Speakers Bureau is keenly interested in identifying events that would be ideal platforms for reaching community members in need.  If you know of such an event, please notify us.

In addition to helping our speakers develop presentations that address the target areas outlined above, we are collecting lists of whitepapers, websites and other free resources related to each topic in order to extend the participants’ learning beyond the presentation. If you know of or would like to contribute such resources, please contact us.
