WIHI is pleased to present a Special Edition Podcast, Women in Action: Paving the Way for Better Care, featuring a panel of outstanding women who are creatively and effectively reshaping caregiving, and conversations about health and health care in the US and around the world.

Whether it’s blowing the whistle on the dangerous levels of lead in drinking water in Flint, Michigan, championing the healing powers of dance and movement in hospitals, or shining a human spotlight on disease outbreaks throughout the world, we learn from the panel that there are multiple ways to act and make a difference today.

WIHI recorded this keynote panel, moderated by Maureen Bisognano, on December 11, 2018, in Orlando, Florida, at the Institute for Healthcare Improvement’s 30th Annual National Forum on Quality Improvement in Health Care.

The podcast is one hour; we recommend that you have the presentation slides handy for reference as you're listening. We also encourage you to watch Vania Deonizio's Dancin' Power video:
