DW Women to Watch 2016 Logo - banner2

Today, we are proud to launch our 16 Disruptive Women to Watch in 2016.  As is our custom and commitment to our thesis—Disruptive Women is highlighting women from a broad cross-section of disciplines, all of which profoundly impact health and health care.

All of our 16 Disruptive Women to Watch in 2016 personify DW’s mission “to serve as a platform for provocative ideas, thoughts, and solutions in the health sphere.”

Disruptive Women in Health Care would like to take a moment to also salute our 15 Disruptive Women to Watch in 2015 and 14 Disruptive Women to Watch in 2014.

Come meet our 16 Disruptive Women to Watch in 2016:
