Welcome to World Pulse, Nancy.

I am greeting you from New Orleans. It is wonderful for the future of our world that you choose to use your many gifts to work for our whole earth. World Pulse exists to share our strengths with those who need them. Many of us are finding reasons to continue hoping through our contacts on World Pulse.

I am in awe of the challenges that you are willing to tackle through technology education and development. I am married to a retired neurologist who was the recipient of a heart transplant in 2001. I have seen medicine from both sides. Your vision of collaboration in medicine is a dire need in all of science. The other dire need that I see is helping people understand how to sort anecdotal and scientific "evidence."

Your visions are one step closer to achievement when you network in such a strong group of empowered people. You are only one person, but you are smart enough to know that our power is exponential when combined with other powerful people. In order to learn more about what World Pulse has to offer, please read the guide to getting started .

You are now a part of a thriving grassroots network of women leaders and supporters from more than 190 countries. I look forward to hearing more of your voice in WorldPulse.

Continue to be a blessing.
