On November 19, Karen Wolk Feinstein, PhD, President and CEO of Jewish Healthcare Foundation (JHF) and Pittsburgh Regional Health Initiative, will announce the launch of a new network known as the Women’s Health Activist Movement Global (WHAM Global) during a TEDx presentation in Brookline, MA. Dr. Feinstein’s TEDx talk will be livestreamed to a worldwide audience on www.tedxbeaconstreet.com.
The national network of female healthcare leaders, collectively known as Women of Impact, are establishing WHAM Global to empower women to lead efforts to advance healthcare systems that are transparent, respectful, accountable, and equitable. WHAM Global will work to leverage technology to create a vibrant activist community unbounded by geography, and by harnessing the knowledge of female, executive-level healthcare professionals who will mentor a new generation of women leaders. In early 2017, WHAM Global will convene women advocacy leaders in health care from across the country to identify partnerships and collaborate on an action plan. WHAM Global’s activist community will collaborate online and through a boots-on-the-ground chapter that will be established in the Pittsburgh region.
