The HIT Like a Girl pod mission is pretty simple: to celebrate women leaders in healthcare and health IT. We advocate for and create more paths to leadership positions for girls and young women to follow.
We want women to feel supported, uplifted, recognized, appreciated, and rewarded for their professional contributions. And if we happen to fix the U.S. healthcare system while doing it, even better.
