Celebrating 20 years of Women’s Health Research!
It was 20 years ago when the Soroptimist International of La Jolla helped establish the Doris A. Howell Foundation for Women’s Health Research to honor a remarkable woman who’s work denoted love, passion for women’s health and compassion. We are celebrating 20 years of working towards bettering the health and well being of not just women, but the families they belong to.
Today, after 20 years, the inspiration brought about by Dr. Howell has allowed the Foundation to award over 200 scholarships to aspiring researchers and doctors, to hold over 80 educational events and to fund 3 grants addressing the health of underserved women in our community.
Our work would not have been possible without the help of our partners. Thank you for many years of accomplishments!
Thank you as well to all our donors and Friends of Howell. Meeting our goals has been possible because of your generous and continuous donations.
Hear! Hear! to the next 20 years of making women’s health a priority in our community.
From Dr. Howell:
“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?”
