Why Is Health Leadership a Great Choice for Your Future?
Health is one of the fastest growing industries in the world and is also ripe for radical change. Employment in healthcare occupations is projected to grow 15% between now and 2029. There is an essential need for women’s voices and perspectives to be elevated in fields of health and for women to contribute to health innovation at the highest levels. By increasing women’s roles in Health Leadership, we can drive innovation and funding for critical health areas that have taken a back seat for too long.
Why Is Salem the Right Place for You?
