A Message and Invitation from HBA Cincinnati President

In 2019, HBA Cincinnati is turning up the volume, engaging with more Cincinnati healthcare leaders and organizations to achieve our HBA purpose of furthering the advancement and impact of women in the business of healthcare. In 2018, we saw our members apply new skills (e.g. elevator speech, negotiation, career planning) and successfully engage in the work of the HBA to advance in their careers. There were many examples of our members landing that dream job, negotiating their value, or simply broadening their network and business connections.
