Women and Leadership: Lessons from the White House

In 1992, Dr. Mariano became the first military woman in American history to be appointed White House Physician. She was nominated by the Navy and selected by the White House for this honour. In 1994, Dr. Mariano was named Director of the White House Medical Unit and chosen by President Bill Clinton to serve as his personal physician. Dr. Mariano served nine years at the White House where she was physician to three sitting American Presidents.

Outlining her journey through education, science & medicine, military, government service, private practice and now, publishing, Dr. Mariano will offer ideas for women about empowerment, inspiration, courage, and wisdom. She speaks to finding your passion and purpose in life especially in the fields of science and education.

UofT Bookstore Dr. Mariano will sign copies of her memoir The White House Doctor: My Patients were Presidents, A Memoir, available for purchase at the event.
