Thurs, March 4 – Congresswoman Debbie Dingell
March 4 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Founder and past chair of the National Women’s Health Resource Center, Congresswoman Debbie Dingell represents the 12th District of Michigan. Joining us on March 4, Rep. Dingell will address the needs of Americans around the country with a new Congress, a new Administration, the continued impeachment of Donald Trump, an increasingly complex global pandemic, and far-right domestic threats. With over five years of experience representing Michiganders, the Congresswoman will offer her perspective for Women’s History Month 2021.
Congresswoman Dingell successfully fought to have women included in federally-funded health research, and advocated for greater awareness of issues directly related to women’s health, including breast cancer and women’s heart health. She is a founder and past chair of the National Women’s Health Resource Center and the Children’s Inn at the National Institutes of Health (NIH). She has served on numerous boards related to women’s issues including the advisory boards for the NIH Panel for Women’s Research, the Michigan Women’s Economic Club, the Susan G. Komen Foundation, and the board of the Michigan Women’s Foundation. She was a co-founder of both the first Race for the Cures in Michigan and in Washington, D.C.
Before being elected to Congress, Dingell was the Chair of the Wayne State University (WSU) Board of Governors. An active civic and community leader, she is a recognized national advocate for women and children.
