Women's Board :: Nationwide Children's Hospital

Women's Board

The Women's Board of Nationwide Children's Hospital was part of the original vision of the hospital when it was founded in 1892. For more than 119 years, the Women's Board has been serving the hospital and raising funds to support the hospital's mission of providing outstanding health care to all children, no matter what their family's financial situation.


The Women's Board signature event is the Junior Golf Classic held each summer. Junior golfers from around Ohio come together for this one day event with the theme of “Healthy Kids Helping Sick Kids”. Register now!

The Women's Board is looking for new members who are excited to help promote Nationwide Children's Hospital throughout our community. If you are interested, please contact Dee Dee English.
