When Orange County media powerhouse Churm Media identifies "20 Women to Watch," Orange County pays attention. This year's impressive list includes two CHOC leaders - Dr. Daphne Wong, Assistant Director of the Pediatric Residency Program and Medical Director of the Suspected Child Abuse and Neglect (SCAN) Program, and Dana Bledsoe, MBA, MS, RN, CNAA, BC, Vice President of Patient Care Services and Chief Nursing Officer.
Both women are featured in the March 13, 2008 issue of OC Metro - one of the most widely read issues published by Churm Media. Wong and Bledsoe were also honored at a private luncheon hosted by Churm Media.
