The need for women's health research
Current health prevention strategies, illness detection and treatment, and drug development efforts rely on inclusive research results. Historically, women have been either underrepresented, or not included in medical research efforts. We seek to close the research gap and avoid gender bias that may lead to adverse outcomes in women’s health.
The Doris A. Howell Foundation for Women’s Health Research is dedicated to making a long-term positive impact on women’s health. It is the premier organization advancing women’s health research through scholarships, grants and community educational outreach.

About the Topic
It is no secret that the pandemic affected everyone, but the burden on women was much higher. Do you know why or how?
The Howell Foundation has partnered with Sharp Healthcare to bring you a first-hand account on how COVID 19 affected women. It will examine the different perspectives and, importantly, the impact of stress experienced during the pandemic. The panel of experts will focus on strategies for tapping into resilience and finding meaning during challenging times, and discuss skills to support your self-care and well-being during the pandemic and beyond.

What Donors are Saying:
We have entered a new era in Women’s Health and “tomorrow’s breakthrough” depends on what we do today to make a difference in the future of health care. It’s an honor to be part of this incredible group of people who believe in women’s health causes.
Although women live longer than men, they bear a greater burden of diseases & disability. I’m privileged to serve on the Howell Foundation Board of Directors to help this exceptional organization promote women’s health research through its student & community engagement research awards.”
For me, the Howell Foundation is about Education. Research. Next Generation. I learn so much about women’s health from the top physician researchers and scientists in San Diego. Knowing that my contribution is going toward women’s health research scholarships is rewarding.
