Outreach

Outreach: A sense of community

Outreach as a tool to Empower Women to be their own best health care advocates.

Outreach is a part of the Howell Foundation’s mission to help educate women to be catalysts for family health.  By motivating and inspiring women to learn more about healthful living, we hope to turn their knowledge into action.

Howell Lecture Series

An important part of the Howell Foundation’s outreach mission is to help educate women to be catalysts for family health by providing information of the results in current scientific research.  By motivating and inspiring women to learn more about healthful living, we hope to turn their knowledge into action.

A trademark of the Howell Foundation’s outreach efforts, our events, provide a forum for medical researchers and experts to convey cutting-edge research on topics relevant to women’s health. 

Additional Community Outreach

In 2018, the Howell Foundation decided to take women’s health research a step farther: support institutions that aligned with our mission to advance women’s health.

Outreach support - WISDOM Trial

WISDOM Trial

That same year, we supported the WISDOM Trial (Women Informed to Screen Depending On Measures of risk). Led by UC San Diego Health, UC Davis Health, UCSF, UCLA Health, UC Irvine, and Sanford Health, the mammography screening research trial is searching to determine which strategy produces the most benefit and least harm for women, especially if women make a series of decisions based on the information provided by their screening.

Outreach Support - Susan G Komen

Susan G. Komen Foundation

In 2019, the Howell Foundation was approached by the Susan G. Komen Foundation to participate in its Second Metastatic Breast Cancer Conference:. ‘Concept to Cure: The Process from Research to Market and Living with Metastatic Breast Cancer’. The focused on the latest advances in metastatic breast cancer treatments, clinical trials, patient support and national issues for metastatic/stage IV breast cancer (MBC). Scientists presented ‘research pitches’ to a panel of judges on their latest work in metastatic breast cancer for a chance to win a $1,000 award provided by the Howell Foundation.
