Taking Risks Can Often Be the Best Thing You Could Ever Do For Your Career!
Stories from Women who Took the Leap of Faith and are Glad They Did
Is it better to take risks in your career or play it safe? Sometimes not taking risks is the riskiest thing you could do in your career. And while we tend to view risk-taking negatively, regarding it as dangerous and even unwise, often risk-taking can and does pay off. Hear from women who have taken chances in their career that even they never envisioned and how they have benefited professionally and personally from that decision.More
WHCM and Massachusetts/Rhode Island Medical Group Management Association (MGMA) are co-sponsoring this event geared to students.

We’d like students to meet fellow women who can talk about the segment of healthcare in which they work.
Join us for a buffet dinner, an educational presentation and a chance to network.
Our presentation, with an opportunity for audience questions, will be given by two women in different arenas of healthcare, offering tips and info on how to make your connections count and advance your career.
