Popovits to be Honored at Gala Dinner in San Francisco on June 12, 2008

SAN FRANCISCO and REDWOOD CITY, Calif., Mar. 3 /PRNewswire/ -- Women Health Care Executives of Northern California (WHCE) announced today that Kimberly Popovits, president and chief operating officer of Redwood City-based Genomic Health, Inc., has been named its 2008 "Woman of the Year." Popovits will be honored at a gala dinner to be held at the Carnelian Room atop the Bank of America building in San Francisco on June 12, 2008.
