FierceHealthcare's 2019 Women of Influence Awards

(Jon Shaw)

Women have always been behind some of the biggest innovations in science—even if the history books haven't been very generous with the credit. And while women have better representation in the healthcare sector compared to corporate America overall, report after report finds the number of women who rise up the ranks in healthcare remains terribly disparate.

In the spirit of recognizing those contributions in the face of those challenges, we're honoring FierceHealthcare's "Women of Influence."

In this group, we have health system leaders, physician executives, health IT experts and insurance leaders who are each working to make an impact on their corner of the industry. 

Learn more about what each of them are doing below.
