Dr. Jessica Grossman’s work has made it possible for almost 80,000 low-income women to have a better chance at controlling their lives and escaping poverty. As CEO of the nonprofit pharmaceutical company, Medicines360, Grossman and her colleagues are helping these women remain in school, hold jobs, or both.

They’re doing this by making long-acting birth control available to low-income women. “As a nonprofit pharmaceutical company,” she explains, “our mission is to provide our product regardless of ability to pay, regardless of location, and regardless of whether an individual is insured or not.”

Academy of Women’s Health Board Member Vivian Pinn is a star when it comes to women’s health.     Her pioneering advocacy of women's health issues and concerns, particularly for assuring that federally funded medical studies include female patients, has had a major impact on how medicine is practiced today.

Pinn’s interest in medicine began at an early age. When she was four years old, she observed that whenever a doctor visited her ill grandparents, not only did her grandparents feel better, the whole family seemed to feel better.  Pinn knew even then that she wanted to be, as with that doctor, someone who made people feel better.  Interestingly, by age four she had already learned to spell “pediatrician.”
