PWH® is built upon a strong history of women leaders in the healthcare supply chain industry who continue to create a platform for progressive leadership and mentoring for the next generation.
Empowering Women to Lead and Succeed
Professional Women in Healthcare® created the "Jana Quinn Inspirational Award" in memory of our friend, Jana Quinn, PWH® founding member, mentor and inspiration to all in the healthcare industry.
This award recognizes an inspirational person in the healthcare industry, male or female, with qualities that define their success not only professionally, but throughout life. The recipient will encompass the qualities that were an inherent part of Jana. She was a mentor, role model, leader, family focused, professional, a loyal friend, a person not afraid of struggle, encouraging, accepting, and so much more. Jana’s combination of endearing qualities drew others in and made them better just by knowing her.
We are seeking a person (female or male) with qualities that were an inherent part of Jana: energizing, inspiring, family focused, friend, mentor, role model and respected servant leader.
