NIH to host Howell Board Member Peg Neuhauser in Seminar Series focused on Supporting Management Excellence.

San Diego, CA. – April 2014. - Author and Howell Board Member Peg Neuhauser has been invited to address the National Institutes of Health this upcoming April 17th at the Institutes’ Seminar Series “Management and Science: Partnering for Excellence.” Launched in 2006 by Coleen Barros, NIH Deputy Director for Management (DDM), the Seminar Series is one of many efforts supporting management excellence at NIH. It is designed to bring outstanding speakers to discuss leadership and administrative management topics. It also provides the administrative and scientific communities with an opportunity to meet and exchange ideas, questions and best practices1. The presentation will take place in Bethesda, Maryland.

One of the world’s foremost medical research organizations, they select four speakers out of a pool of 60 to present throughout the year; Neuhauser being one of them. The programs are intended for both administrators and scientists and require a versatile and knowledgeable speaker. The NIH (National Institutes of Health) is the leading medical research organization of the US Department of Health and Human Services.

Neuhauser started PCN Associates in 1984 working as a business mediator, corporate culture consultant, and a speaker on burnout, conflict management, organizational culture, and coping with change. She has worked with clients in many industries including IBM, AARP, Oracle, and the American Hospital Association.

“It is an honor to be invited to speak before an NIH audience. And to do so representing the Doris A. Howell Foundation for Women’s Health Research makes me very proud”, comments Neuhauser.

As a board member of the foundation, Neuhauser helped launch the Howell Foundation’s Health and Happiness Evening Series in 2012 as a means to combine two of her passions in life: education and women’s health. Focused on bringing awareness to women’s health, the series offers a research based, and thought provoking approach to health with topics that present the latest research behind happiness and women’s health.

All proceeds of Neuhauser’s speaking engagements including the NIH speaking fee are donated to the Doris A. Howell Foundation for Women’s Health Research. To learn more on the many ways you can give to “Keep the Women we Love Healthy” and donate to the Foundation, visit
