The 2017 Women’s Healthcare Innovation and Leadership Showcase (WHILS) is the third biennial signature conference presented by the HBA NY/NJ region. WHILS gathers experts and stakeholders from across the spectrum of healthcare to discuss challenges, share scientific and practical learnings, and spotlight opportunities for innovation and change in women’s healthcare. The program considers four strategic pillars for impacting change: basic and clinical research, medical practice, health literacy, and access to care.
