Hall of Femme

Since 2016, MM&M’s annual Hall of Femme event has sought to tackle the most pressing issues facing women leaders in healthcare marketing, and this year’s installment was no exception. Highlights of our coverage range from keynote Dr. Vivian Pinn’s evidence-based exploration of the lack of women leaders in science and healthcare, to a panel on how women execs are paving the way for others. PLUS: A gatefold cover features members of this year’s class honored at the June event.
