In 2011, the United Nations named October 11 as the Day of the Girl Child
. In the United States, we have the Day of the Girl
, a 100 percent youth-led movement for gender justice and youth activism. Day of the Girl falls during U.S. National Health IT (NHIT) Week
, which is fitting as one of the NHIT Week points of engagement is increasing economic opportunities. In order to do so, it is important to build a robust, diverse workforce, especially in healthcare.
