Building the Future of Leadership in Women’s Health

Fall Event: September 16, 2013

The inaugural Women’s Xchange Fall Event, Building the Future of Leadership in Women’s Health, was held on September 16, 2013 at the YWCA. This goal of this event was to inspire attendees to look at women’s health from a broad perspective and to demonstrate that women’s health is influenced by factors outside the traditional health care setting. The event consisted of a panel discussion of diverse women leaders who impact the health of women in unique ways. This event also aimed to inspire future leaders to consider their own career path and how they can make a difference in women’s health.
