"Keeping the Women We Love Healthy"

"Take the research that is being done, translate it, and put it into practical use.  Please take it seriously because we have no way to go but up, no option but success, no way to go but to fill the need.  It is filling that need that I hope our Foundation will constantly do as its mission...

 And so far I believe we’ve succeeded."

                             ~ Dr. Doris Howell.
