What is the Women in Digital Health Initiative?
Launched in February 2018, the Women in Digital Health Initiative is focused on addressing the needs of women in the digital health community. By providing female entrepreneurs and innovation executives with relevant resources, content and a supportive community, we aim to help them develop the skills and confidence to be leaders in digital health. Whether it be through our quarterly social events, female-focused blog posts, or our monthly newsletter, we are uniting a community of women to learn from each other and become the female face of healthcare's future.
