Nancy Howell Agee
President and CEO, Carilion Clinic
Agee had a front row seat in 2018 for some of healthcare's biggest policy battles. Not only did she serve as chair of the American Hospital Association's board of trustees, but she was a leading voice in her home state of Virginia for expanding Medicaid. Agee also oversaw the integration of the Virginia Tech Carilion School of Medicine to become fully part of Virginia Tech. Agee has been a long-time mentor of women leaders inside and outside of Carilion, where half the leadership team is female.
