The Rittenhouse

The Woman One Award and Scholarship Fund annually honors a person of exceptional leadership and raises tuition funds for talented underrepresented students at Drexel University. Thirty-six Scholars have received tuition support of almost $3 million since the program began in 2003. Many are currently practicing medicine in underserved communities.

The Institute for Women’s Health and Leadership of Drexel University College of Medicine will honor Lynn Yeakel as Woman One 2022. In the fall of 2021, the Woman One Selection Committee, composed of former honorees, unanimously chose to honor Lynn for her longtime leadership and contributions to the Philadelphia region and for her role, as director of the Institute and the Betty A. Cohen Chair in Women's Health, in founding the Woman One Award and Scholarship Fund program almost two decades ago. The ceremony and reception, taking place on Monday, April 25, at 5:30 p.m. at The Rittenhouse, will celebrate Lynn's legacy as an inspiring leader and an unrelenting voice for women's equality.
