PWH is built upon a strong history of women leaders in the healthcare supply chain industry who continue to create a platform for progressive leadership and mentoring for the next generation.

Empowering Women to Lead and Succeed


PWH is excited to announce the 2018 recipient of the John Sasen Scholarship, Ariel Hartman, Brand Communications Specialist at McKesson. Ariel applied for the scholarship and was also nominated by two of her peers.  She is dedicated to growing her career and is interested in networking with others in the industry. 

Congratulations Ariel, on your well-deserved scholarship. 

Several women were considered for this award that honors someone in the healthcare industry that is an inspiring individual, demonstrates leadership and is an ambassador to the industry. The scholarship is awarded to one woman each year and includes a one-year PWH membership as well as attendance to the HIDA Executive Conference.



John Sasen is an amazing individual, and we say “is” because if we learn well, his wisdom and spirit will live on in all of us.  He is an incredible mentor, an extremely kind soul and person who brings out the best in everyone that knows him.  He is an ambassador for the industry and an “elder statesman” in his own right.  He is open to diversity and cares about the young women and men that he brought along and tutored patiently. He makes us want to be better for the industry, our organizations and ourselves. He will be incredibly missed by all. Our hearts are saddened deeply by this loss and yet committed even more to carry on his legacy in an industry that he loved.

“...his story is that of a person who has never stopped dreaming, and who believes that change can only make a person better and stronger. It is the story of someone who is committed to training and education.”  –Repertoire

In honor of our dear friend and mentor, PWH announces the John Sasen Scholarship. The scholarship annually awards one woman within our industry a one year PWH membership as well as airfare, hotel and attendance to the HIDA Executive Conference. 

Applications and nominations for the 2019 John Sasen Memorial Scholarship will open in the winter of 2018.
