TeamHealth’s Women In Leadership group is aimed at the recruitment, development and retention of female leaders at TeamHealth. Started in 2016, the group contains more than 600 members, connecting women through social media and learning events. The group is excited to sponsor the Women in Leadership Symposium. During the symposium, we will also present our annual Women in Leadership Award. The award is designed to recognize the contributions of a female leader within TeamHealth. The Women in Leadership Award is presented for demonstration of exemplary leadership abilities that enable others to succeed in the healthcare field. Leadership of noteworthy contributions to the healthcare field on a single project over several years or during a career; commitment to professional growth, and service as a role model or mentor that shows dedication to the advancement of women in healthcare.

Attendees of the National Medical Leadership Conference are invited to join us for a session of networking, panel discussions and keynote speech by Vernice Armour, the first African American female combat pilot.
Leveraging her “Breakthrough Mentality” and “Get Gutsy” mindset, Vernice “FlyGirl” Armour propelled herself from beat cop to combat pilot in a record-breaking three years and became America’s first African American female combat pilot. As featured on CNN, MSNBC, The View, FOX News, Oprah Winfrey and others, FlyGirl’s fresh and edgy style, high and contagious energy and unique, gutsy essence jump off the stage, page and screen, moving people to action.

We look forward to seeing all of you at #NMLC18!
