Deborah Love, Director of the Richmond Academy of Medicine and Access Now Inc., has been selected as Virginia Lawyers Media’s Influential Woman of the Year for 2012.
Selected by a vote of the 44-member 2012 class of Influential Women of Virginia, Love’s signal achievement in recent years has been helping to develop Access Now Inc., a network of 950 volunteer specialty physicians who provide complex care for indigent patients. Since 2008, physicians in the Richmond metropolitan area have provided over $15 million in donated care and services, including hip replacement, breast surgery, chemotherapy and treatment of eye and skin diseases.
The Influential Women program, now in its fourth year, recognizes high-achieving women in the fields of law, health care, business, education and real estate, among others.
All members of the 2012 group nominated from around the commonwealth were honored today at a luncheon in Richmond, with the announcement of this year’s top honoree at the conclusion of the program.
