Women's Health Pioneer Honored

 PHILADELPHIA  — Saint Joseph's University's Haub School of Business (HSB) will recognize pharmaceutical leader Gerianne Tringali DiPiano ’92 (MBA), president, CEO and founder of FemmePharma Global Healthcare, Inc., with the 21st Annual Hall of Fame Award during a dinner and award presentation on April 7. DiPiano is the first woman to receive the award.

“The Haub School is encouraged that DiPiano’s Hall of Fame award will inspire the members of our community to pioneer their own path in business,” says HSB Dean Joseph A. DiAngelo Jr., Ed.D. ’70. “We are excited to honor Gerianne for both her professional achievements and her leadership in advancing women’s health issues within the pharmaceutical industry.”

In 1996, DiPiano founded FemmePharma to fill a void in what she recognized was an industry that fell short on women’s issues. Fifteen years later, FemmePharma Global Healthcare has developed treatment options for women suffering from diseases and disorders such as endometriosis, urinary incontinence, fibrocystic breast disease, HIV, dysfunctional uterine bleeding, and other conditions.

The Eastern Technology Council has saluted FemmePharma as a “Company to Watch” through its annual Enterprise Awards. DiPiano was also named by the Philadelphia Business Journal as one of the “Top 50 People to Watch in Pennsylvania.” She was recognized by Governor Ed Rendell in 2007 as one of Pennsylvania’s “51 best Women in Business.” Recently, DiPiano was named one of the “100 Most Inspiring Individuals” in the United States Pharmaceutical Industry and one of the top 12 entrepreneurs by PharmaVoice.

“I would like to thank God for giving me the opportunity to receive this award and share my experience with Saint Joseph’s students, faculty and administrators,” says DiPiano. “I believe His mission for me is to help women in many difference ways. The disparities between men and women extend past healthcare; I feel it’s important for me, and for my company, to advance women’s issues for a better future for our daughters.”

DiPiano currently serves on Saint Joseph’s University’s Board of Trustees, Drexel University’s Board of Trustees, the Corporate Advisory Board of the Society for Gynecologic Investigation, and the Editorial Advisory Board of Biotechnology Healthcare.

The Hall of Fame Award dinner will take place at the Ritz Carlton Philadelphia on Wednesday, April 7, 2011, at 6 p.m.
