2022 Panelists:

The Wonder Women of LSU Health are trailblazers in the field of healthcare. Our panelists are women who have established new programs in their organizations. They have built new partnerships for themselves and other women to further careers and ignite passion. They are women who have created more access to the best healthcare.

To be considered as one of the six panelists, the following criteria is required:

  • Panelists must be an alumnae of one of our six schools:
    • LSU School of Dentistry
    • LSU School of Medicine
    • LSU School of Allied Health Professions

    • LSU School of Public Health
    • LSU School of Nursing
  • Panelists must have held or currently hold leadership positions in organizations relating to the healthcare and the field of their expertise
  • Panelists must have established new programs within their field of expertise

Each year we will have room for one non-alumni panelist. This person will be chosen for their special relationship to LSU Health and will show an exemplary commitment to our organization.
