        HISTORY

        MWAN Rivers State

        The Medical Women Association of Nigeria, Rivers State Branch was birthed in 1985. The Initiator, Dr Bernadette T Korubo, without prior knowledge of the existence of such a body in Nigeria, while relaxing with an Italian friend and professional colleague, Dr Maria Corona Onyeonu, mooted the idea of bringing all the female doctors in Port Harcourt together under an umbrella of friendship and fellowship.
        Her friend informed her that such an association of female doctors existed in her country and the idea became a reality with a tea party held in Dr Onyeonu's clinic, to which most of the female doctors residing in Port Harcourt were invited. Attendance was encouraging and consequently the body with the name, “Medical Women's International Association” Rivers State Branch was formed. The State Branch at its meeting held an election in which the executive emerged with Dr Tumini Blue-Jack Wilcox as pioneer President.
