Starr Mirza, Speaker at the Coalition for Women's Health Equity's 2nd annual Women's Health Empowerment Summit.

Hadassah has made women's health equity a top priority, in 2016 founding the Coalition for Women's Health Equity, which has since grown to 28 organizations. 

“Hadassah is committed to pooling our organizations' wisdom, experience and resources in the fight against gender disparities and inequities in all aspects of health,” said Ellen Hershkin, Hadassah National President.
