HBAdvantage: Leadership in Action – Spring 2017
Healthcare Businesswomen’s Association
This year marks a special milestone for the Healthcare Businesswomen’s Association. Forty years ago, five courageous women came together in New York with a shared passion to make the advertising and medical journal world of healthcare a place where women could not just survive but thrive. (Please turn to page 10 for more about the remarkable evolution/revolution of the HBA.)
And since this is the Woman of the Year (WOTY) edition of the HBAdvantage, I would be remiss if I didn’t congratulate our 2017 Woman of the Year Bahija Jallal, PhD, executive VP, AstraZeneca, and head of MedImmune; our 2017 Honorable Mentor Joaquin Duato, worldwide chairman, pharmaceuticals, Johnson & Johnson; our 2017 STAR Ceci Zak, principal and COO at Batten & Co.; as well as our 2017 Rising Stars and Luminaries. I also want to thank our many sponsors, Corporate Partners and members for their visible support of our mission.
