The Independent Women’s Voice created the Healthcare Leadership Awards to recognize those leaders who are willing to fight for greater choice, lower out-of-pocket costs, a stronger bond between a patient and her doctor, and greater access to high-quality, affordable healthcare. Each of the 2014 recipients has been a vocal and outspoken leader in the promotion of sensible and innovative patient-focused health care reform.
“We launched the Healthcare Leadership Awards to recognize leaders who understand the threat that ObamaCare poses to women, families and our economy and are working to advance patient-centered reforms that will create a better healthcare system for all Americans. Each of these recipients has made it clear to the people of his or her state that ObamaCare is neither caring nor affordable and we need to both minimize the damage it is causing and work to start over," said IWV President and CEO Heather R. Higgins. "More than that, however, we sought out those voices who were willing to articulate innovative solutions to the challenge of providing high-quality, low-cost healthcare to everyone.”
