From its very outset, the Disruptive Women blog stated that its mission was “to serve as a platform for provocative ideas, thoughts, and solutions in the health sphere.” Now in its fourth year, the blog has not only achieved its stated mission, but exceeded it. Disruptive Women has become an online destination for innovative thinking on exciting health trends and current health policy issues. The Disruptive Women blog has become a thought leader and influencer in its own right, receiving numerous awards and accolades including being named “one of the top health policy blogs” by Health Tech and a “Fierce Female Healthcare Blog To Watch” by Fierce Healthcare.
The Disruptive Women community goes beyond the online world, regularly hosting breakfast forums, panel discussions, and receptions on timely and often controversial health policy topics.
Through these events, Disruptive Women brings together prominent players with different opinions and ideologies. Not only do these events serve as invaluable networking opportunities, but they result in fascinating debates and collaborations. Disruptive Women began with a handful of powerful and influential voices. Those ranks have swelled with the blog’s growing popularity.
Today, there are nearly 100 global contributors, including former Members of Congress and other elected officials, health professionals, technology leaders, patient advocates, medical researchers, economists and thought leaders. This stellar roster continues to grow with more individuals whose provocative ideas and eye-opening insights make them Disruptive Women.
The Disruptive Women blog, which also features a regular Man of the Month post, continues to evolve by addressing today’s pressing health care issues with innovative and exciting thematic posts, e-books and in-person events.
