The Top Women in Healthcare Awards Luncheon will take place on July 16, 2019 from 12 to 2 p.m. at The Yale Club in New York City. This celebratory event will bring together female healthcare executives who are advancing their profession in meaningful and moving ways, with an impact on patients, customers and culture at large. We will have a networking reception from 12 to 12:30 p.m. to kick things off so bring your team and book a table to this afternoon event that is guaranteed to inspire and connect you with healthcare leaders. The networking reception will be followed by an eye-opening keynote address by Jennifer Mieres, national spokesperson for the American Heart Association’s Go Red For Women movement and a co-author of several books about heart health for women. Dr. Mieres will touch on the state of communication around women’s health and heart health, among other topics.
