International Women’s Day 2023

International Women’s Day is celebrated around the world on March 8. This year, Becker’s Hospital Review invited women in the healthcare industry to share their insights on leadership. The Texas Heart Institute’s Center for Cardiovascular Care’s Dr. Briana Costello shares her words of advice.
