How Can 50 Women Change The Health Care Industry?

This Thursday, The Show spoke with a guest who thinks one thing that is essential in shaping the future of health care is including more women in it.

Lisa Mead is a former nurse and the founder of Arizona Women in Healthcare. She said that while women dominate the healthcare industry, they make up only a fraction of those in the leadership positions.

She wants to change that, so she’s launching a new program called " 50 Women Can Change The World Healthcare Leadership Program" in partnership with nonprofit Take The Lead. Right now, she’s recruiting women to join.

Lauren Gilger, host of KJZZ's The Show, is an award-winning journalist whose work has impacted communities large and small, exposing injustices and giving a voice to the voiceless and marginalized.
