The newest subject of the Women's Health Leadership TRUST Member Spotlight is Anita Sharma, part of the Fairview Ventures team at MHealth/Fairview. Anita uses visual management to stabilize, standardize and improve key functions of the business model; builds relationships with key stakeholders throughout the organization to foster strategic alignment to innovative technology solutions; and teaches the scientific method to test hypotheses and utilize lessons learned to develop new tests of change.

Fairview Ventures is a fully integrated innovation lab within Fairview Health Services. The team pairs the ideas of entrepreneurs with the operations and expertise of Fairview's comprehensive health system to test, evolve and validate the commercial viability of new possibilities in health care.

Anita joined the TRUST after attending one of our Forum events. "I was invited to the annual TRUST meeting by one of my mentors, Anne Pearson, who is also a TRUST member. I was humbled by the number of intelligent, driven, and welcoming women in health care, who were all open to sharing their experiences with me. To continue to learn about the TRUST, I became involved with the Leadership Development Committee, which planned the mentoring program this year. Serving as an ambassador this year at the TRUST Forum helped push me out of my comfort zone and gave me the opportunity to welcome potential new members during the event. The networks I have built through the TRUST are invaluable, and I am so grateful!"

Each month, the TRUST highlights at least one member in our Member Spotlight feature. The profiles are coordinated by the TRUST's Marketing Communication Committee members, who work to select TRUST members from a variety of health care career settings and at various career stages.
