Women’s History Month: Healthcare Edition

By Monica Manna

As Women’s History Month begins, take a moment to celebrate the women you know in the  healthcare, marketing and PR industry today.

Women’s History Month was created to not only celebrate, but encourage the younger generation of females to challenge social expectations. Today, women continue to break barriers in the medical field, creating a place for women in medicine and healthcare. 

A few key women you should know about are, Dr. Hill, Ms. Hanna, and Ms. Froehlich who are some of the trailblazers in the healthcare industry today. Through the success of these women, and their predecessors, the path is paved for women to be involved in the healthcare and health tech industry. The more women that share their knowledge and get a seat at the table means more success and progress in the industry as a whole. When younger women see representation in any passion they pursue, there is change for the better. Let us salute their accomplishments!
