The National Women’s History Alliance designates a yearly theme for Women’s History Month with the 2022 theme being “Women Providing Healing, Promoting Hope.” This theme is “both a tribute to the ceaseless work of caregivers and frontline workers during this ongoing pandemic and also a recognition of the thousands of ways that women of all cultures have provided both healing and hope throughout history.” In this spirit, NASPGHAN remains indebted to the tireless work of female healers and leaders.
