The Arts of Healing Foundation

May 13, 2022 | News

EndoRx and DFC Medical were honored to be the primary underwriting sponsors for this diverse and dynamic group of women in a runway show like no other – a runway of role models.

The Arts of Healing Foundation hosted its inaugural Women in Medicine Runway Show featuring 22 dynamic and diverse women as both the honorees and the runway models. The women represented a multitude of fields, practices, and backgrounds in medicine.

As the 250-plus guests arrived at Tootsies, flagship store in Houston, the buzz and excitement mixed with camaraderie and pride was palpable. Glimpses behind the scenes of these superstars in medicine- sharing this new experience and preparing themselves for their moment on the catwalk amplified the anticipation. Dr. Isaac Raijman, Co-Founder of The Arts of Healing stated the “inner light so powerful that you shine the path ahead for you and for others” could not have been more true.
