Rock Weekly: Where the ladies at?


July 30, 2012

Our mission? To encourage dialogue and action around gender diversity in healthcare leadership.

Guest bloggers will be posting every day on the Rock Blog, and many more will be sharing across the web.  Have something to say? Tweet with the hashtag #xxinhealth or get involved at
