WPC Annual Conference

September 20-23, 2018 (Thursday-Sunday)

“WPC is the one place where I don’t have to explain
who I am, why I have chosen to do what I’ve done, or
why I am choosing to stay in a career that is so difficult…
The women at WPC ‘get it’. They get that God’s calling
is higher than my comfort. They get the drive to pursue it.
And they get my doubts and thoughts of giving it all up.” 
 -female medical student

and be blessed through fellowship
