The Pittsburgh Regional Health Initiative (PRHI) and the Jewish Healthcare Foundation (JHF) have created avenues for you to connect with people like you who are passionate about changing health care.
The goal of the Health Activist Network is to connect like-minded health professionals, across systems and states, who are committed to advancing health reform, patient safety, and quality. This Network will knit together "action groups" leveraging an online knowledge management platform - Tomorrow's HealthCareTM - to facilitate communication, engagement, collaboration, learning, and concerted action among its members.

WHAMGlobal believes that women must be vocal about flaws in our healthcare system, and use their individual and collective voice for reform. It is creating a force of women activists, unbounded by geography, who can bring to the table new perspectives, consensus-building, and mentoring skills.

WHAMGlobal is powered by Tomorrow's HealthCareTM and is a joint venture of the Jewish Healthcare Foundation, Heinz Family Foundation, and Women of Impact.
