Women of Change Honors Larkin

Dr. Lisa Larkin“Dr. Lisa Larkin was nominated as a sozHa Sister for many reasons,” said Kathy Rambo a West Chester and Liberty Chamber Alliance executive. “Her amazing accomplishments, her courage in the throes of her own medical issues, and especially because of her passion for women’s health issues, Lisa made a perfect candidate to receive this award.”

Lisa Larkin, MD, UC Health Women’s Center director, was recently honored by soHza with the Women of Change award. SoHza, a women-centered company connects women through their stories and causes both locally and globally and partners with Cincinnati based women-centered, non-profit organizations such as YWCA, Girls on the Run, Women Helping Women, The Women of Excellence, and Pink Ribbon Girls.

“Many of us watched and supported Lisa as she turned her women’s health passion into a reality, working diligently to bring the UC Health Women’s Center to fruition,” says Rambo. “She is a role model to many and a strong leader in this community and beyond. She deserves to be highlighted and as you can tell, I am a huge supporter and will continue to be her cheerleader.”

Twice a year, SoHza asks their local non-profit partners to nominate a “soHza sister.” This sister is a woman who inspires others – not by what she says, but by what she does. SoHza Sister Cincy magazine is published twice a year to be the platform for sharing the inspiring stories of local female change makers.
