Rosa DeLauro

Federal Congresswoman (D – Connecticut)

I love what you’re doing. Whatever you need from me, I’m there.”

Nicolle Gonzales

Founder of The Changing Woman Initiative and NWHN HEALTH Program Grantee

The HEALTH program was super helpful and informative, it helped me understand more of what my role is in health policy and provided clear skills I can use in my work. I came away feeling supported and with new information I did not have access to before. I will be hosting a Native American Maternal & Reproductive Health Policy summit in the fall after getting the support from participants of this program.” 

Byllye Avery

Founder of the Black Women’s Health Imperative

 It’s always an honor to do anything with the National Women’s Health Network. Belita Cowan, the former head of the Network, took me under her wing. She taught me everything. The Network’s founders were brave. These women were bold. Please stand on their shoulders.

Josie Morgan

NWHN Member and Storyteller  

Thank you for allowing me to share my story. Probably more than you know, it’s been really healing and helpful to share it in a safe space, and I love the work that you’re doing.

“I want you to know that I had supported the Abortion Bill, until now. Until I heard how this could have potentially taken [Anna’s} life. It shouldn’t take an intense trauma story to convince anyone but I’m glad it did me.”

"I came to know this podcast from Twitter. Honestly - if you are a woman or a member of any marginalized group, this is the perfect podcast for you! It is an awesome resource for women in medicine and generally anyone who is interested in getting expert insights on various medical conditions. Again, there are a lot of podcasts out there competing for your time. This is one of the few that is worthy of our attention."
