Attendees at the DA4S proudly display their pride
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.
