Academy of Women’s Health Board Member Vivian Pinn is a star when it comes to women’s health.     Her pioneering advocacy of women's health issues and concerns, particularly for assuring that federally funded medical studies include female patients, has had a major impact on how medicine is practiced today.

Pinn’s interest in medicine began at an early age. When she was four years old, she observed that whenever a doctor visited her ill grandparents, not only did her grandparents feel better, the whole family seemed to feel better.  Pinn knew even then that she wanted to be, as with that doctor, someone who made people feel better.  Interestingly, by age four she had already learned to spell “pediatrician.”
