AHLA Celebrates Women's History Month

  • March, 01, 2022

AHLA celebrates Women’s History Month with members and the broader health law community, highlighting the month’s theme of “Providing Healing, Promoting Hope.” All are invited to join AHLA in celebrating this month by learning about the achievements of women in health law and finding opportunities to further our shared goal of eliminating barriers to health equity.

AHLA members are encouraged to participate in AHLA’s many programs, initiatives, and educational tools this month to celebrate, educate, and observe Women’s History Month. Join AHLA today through:

This Community was built for discussion among health law professionals interested in women’s issues and provide a forum for women health law professionals to find one another and connect over their perspectives and shared experiences in the industry. 
  • Sharing your story.  AHLA invites members this month to share with us who inspired you, what work there still needs to be done within our community, or how you celebrate Women’s History month. Members can upload a video for AHLA to amplify today.
