Pioneering Women

WGHA’s Pioneering Women are an inspired, behind-the-scenes force who help make things happen. An informal network of professional women with an affinity for global health, Pioneering Women get together a few times a year, contribute auction items and desserts to the Pioneers of Global Health Awards Dinner and Auction , and volunteer their time, money, wit, and wisdom to support WGHA’s mission.
