As we begin 2016, the TRUST's Board of Directors and I thank you for your participation and support for the Women's Health Leadership TRUST! Our membership is growing, we have added some excellent new benefits for members, and we have many excellent programs to look forward to in the coming year. Here are just a few highlights of our progress:

  • Our membership stands at 382 as of January 1 — compared with 282 in December 2014.
  • We initiated a new category of membership in 2015, the Graduate Student/Faculty Member, bringing greater involvement from the next generation of women leaders in healthcare.
  • We hosted 20 events and programs in 2015, compared with 14 in 2014. Our schedule for 2016 is even more ambitious! Please check out the calendar and register for one or more of our excellent events to stay at the forefront of health care and to network with our amazing members.
  • The new ACCELERATE Mentor program is kicking off this month with more than 25 pairs of mentors and mentees. Watch for more information throughout the year about our first cohort of mentors and mentees.
  • Our Forum Committee has revamped the process for award nominations. We had 60 candidates nominated for the 2016 awards — an excellent showing for the first year of this new process! We can't wait to find out the winners at the 2016 Forum on April 25.

The TRUST Board of Directors firmly believes that the best is yet to come! Again, thank you for your membership; I look forward to seeing you at one or more of our wonderful events in the coming year.
