HBA Houston Honored Volunteer award for June 2019 was recently presented to Debbie Leder. Debbie was nominated for her commitment and many contributions as a volunteer for HBA Houston. She has been extremely active with HBA Houston since it launched in 2017 as an HBA Houston Ambassador, a critical role that has been key to our success and growth. This year, Debbie served on the HBA Houston Shoot for the Stars Event executive committee for its inaugural HBA Houston panel discussion. The event was a huge success thanks to Debbie’s leadership and contributions. Debbie has also been working on two HBA Houston events back-to-back this summer, bringing inspiring speakers to Houston that will significantly impact our member’s professional development.
Thank you, Debbie, for your dedication to inspire and further the advancement and impact of women in the business of healthcare. HBA Houston would not be possible without the contributions of volunteers like Debbie. She is an extraordinary volunteer that has played a significant role in building the HBA presence in Houston from the very beginning. We are lucky to have Debbie as part of our HBA Houston Leadership Board.
