AIMW24 Community Initiative

AIMW Community Initiative

Giving back to the communities hosting Academic Internal Medicine Week is a priority and, each year, a new local nonprofit will benefit. To lead by example, the Alliance has made a donation to our 2024 host city organization. We hope you'll join us in our support of Freedom A La Cart.

Thank you for your generous donations

It's our pleasure to announce that as of April 30, 2024, the AIMW Community Initiative has raised over $7,000 in donations for Freedom A La Cart! They also report that their Café + Bakery recorded its busiest days ever thanks to the AIMW24 attendees! We are incredibly grateful for everyone's generosity and support for this very deserving organization.

We look forward to making a difference again next year at AIMW25 in New Orleans, LA!

Freedom A La Cart

Freedom A La Cart, located in Columbus, OH, empowers survivors of sex trafficking and exploitation to build lives of freedom and self-sufficiency. They believe that giving a woman practical job skills and developing a strong work ethic is vital for creating a pathway to freedom. Freedom A La Cart provides a safe place of restoration where survivors can heal, learn, and grow as they prepare for sustainable employment and reintegrate into our community.
