Everyone looks for purpose in their careers, and healthcare provides us with
numerous reasons to feel useful: advancing the cause of science, being in a
vibrant and high-tech industry, and especially delivering help and relief to
millions of patients.
Earlier this year we attended the Woman of the Year
event held by the Healthcare Businesswomen’s Association (HBA) in Manhattan. It was there that we kicked
off our effort to visually represent the many ways in
which people celebrate their work in healthcare. We
provided attendees with signs on which they could
write their feelings, and we ran photos of those people
in our June/July issue.
The response was enthusiastic enough that we followed
up with a second series of photos taken at the Diversity
Alliance for Science (DA4S) in Newark, NJ. Here are
just some of the positive statements we gathered from
a very dedicated crowd, proof of the pride we all feel to
be associated with this great work.
