Women of Achievement in Health Care:

Health encompasses a person's overall wellbeing and can include physical, mental, emotional, social, financial, spiritual and intellectual components, just to name a few. Health is important at the level of the individual, the family and of whole communities, and we know that women play a critical role in every aspect of what creates health families and environments.

Women make about 90% of health care decisions for their families. However, we know that there are fewer women than men in leadership positions in the field of health care. As an example, women make up just 14% of the Fortune 500 healthcare company boards.
