Give for Women

This Holiday season, celebrate the health of the women you love by
donating towards women's health research!

Dr. Doris Howell - Our Founder Howell Foundation for Women's Health Research

“How many of you have wives;
how many of you have daughters;
how many of you have sisters?
And I know you all have mothers…

What do you do to help them stay healthy?”

Women’s Health starts with RESEARCH. 

Health prevention strategies, illness diagnosis and treatment, and drug development efforts rely on female-inclusive research. Historically, women have been either underrepresented, or excluded. This may lead to  adverse health outcomes for women.

The Howell Foundation works to ensure women are included in scientific studies affecting THEIR health. 

  • We invest in current and future health professionals by funding undergraduate and graduate researchers conducting women-specific studies.  We strive to inspire the the future  generation of scientists and researchers to follow a career in sciences.  
  • We offer early access to women-specific, cutting-edge research to promote health awareness and positively affect women’s health.  Our Lecture Series Program is meant to present accurate research information to empower women to make decisions about THEIR own health. 

“We have entered a new era in Women’s Health. Tomorrow’s research breakthrough depends on what we do today to make a difference in the future of women’s health.  It’s an honor to be part of this incredible group of people who believe in women’s health causes.”

 ~ Maryanne Sorge, Family Nurse Practitioner and Friend of Howell
