Sheppard, Mullin, Richter & Hampton LLP recently announced the formation of the Women in Healthcare Leadership Collaborative (WHLC), an exclusive leadership initiative for women in-house attorneys, compliance officers, business leaders and other professionals in the healthcare industry who have the talent and drive to advance their careers in a dynamic and heavily regulated industry. WHLC provides its members with legal and industry insights on critical issues in healthcare today, as well as professional skills training and development, networking and mentoring opportunities.
The WHLC kicked off its programming series with a well-attended roundtable discussion on September 17 on “Social Determinants of Health: Developing & Leveraging Partnerships with Community-based Organisations,” featuring presenter Dr. Amanda Parsons, Deputy Chief Medical Officer at MetroPlus Health Plan and Dawn Johnson, Principal at COPE Health Solutions.
“There wasn’t an empty seat in the room; proof that members are hungry for this type of engaging, substantive and highly relevant content and for the opportunity to connect with other women leaders in the healthcare industry,” said Amanda Zablocki, senior associate and co-leader of Sheppard Mullin’s WHLC program.
Danielle Vrabie, senior associate and co-leader of Sheppard Mullin’s WHLC program, added: “We saw members already forming new connections and discussing future collaborations. We are excited to build on this momentum and create additional programming on topics our members are eager to digest.”
“This collaborative is unlike any other within the healthcare industry,” said Eric Klein, leader of the firm’s Healthcare team. “As a leading healthcare law firm, Sheppard Mullin is well positioned to connect like-minded women leaders in healthcare and offer targeted programming on critical issues that matter to them. We are very proud of bringing this vision to life and how quickly it has attracted national interest.”
The WHLC will host its next program in New York on January 23, 2020 and it will be streamed live in the firm’s San Francisco office. It will feature a lively roundtable discussion with Sheppard Mullin healthcare attorneys Christine Clements, Bevin Newman, Allison Fulton and Kathleen Stratton on “A View from the Capitol: 2020 Healthcare Policy, Legal and Regulatory Predictions.”
