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
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.
With just under 30 women attending, Women in Healthcare management was proud to host our second summer event of the year. We had such an overwhelmingly positive response to our venue, Anthony’s Coal Fired Pizza, that we chose to use them again!
Exceptional food and service all around!
It was an honor to meet so many members, and those who have not yet become members. There was a lot of talk around all of the tables, and I heard many connections and follow up’s being made throughout the group.
We look forward to seeing you in the fall!

Join us for dinner and a panel discussion!

Remember the days when you visited the doctor when sick, picked up your medication at the local pharmacy, and had few out-of-pocket expenses?
Today, we’re self-diagnosing via online tools, tracking our heart rates and steps, and using message portals to contact clinician. In short, we’re engaging more and the healthcare industry increasingly wants consumers to:
- Understand costs & choose the right source of care;
- Monitor physical activity & diet;
- Utilize self-service tools; and
- Engage with a care manager at their provider or health plan.
How is this reality shaping the healthcare industry? Key questions we’ll explore in this panel discussion:
- How are payers & providers shifting practices to engage consumers?
- What consumer needs are start-ups fulfilling?
- How are employers supporting consumers?
- What role does government play in supporting increased consumer engagement?
Join colleagues, friends and members for an informal night of conversation and networking. Get out of the house during the winter season and be warmed through connections with other women in the healthcare industry. Appetizers and a cash bar included. Hope to see you there!
In the case of inclement weather, we will post a cancellation notice here by 12 pm on January 29th.
Join WHCM for appetizers and a cash bar as we network with friends and colleagues in Woburn.
We have another exciting fall forum planned! Join us for a buffet dinner, two educational breakout sessions (running concurrently) and a chance to network.
