Did you read this?

2015 was a very busy -- and successful-- year!  Read about the impact the Doris A. Howell Foundation had in our community.

Oh yea...  and 2016, get ready, here we come!  We kick off the year with the lecture "Understanding the genome 10,000 experiments at a time: applying genomic approaches to understand autoimmune disease in women" with Sonia Sharma, Ph.D.

Why should you attend?  Did you know that:
     ·       Taken together, autoimmune diseases strike women three times more than men? Some diseases have an even higher incidence in women!
·        Autoimmune diseases have been cited in the top ten leading causes of all deaths among U.S. women age 65 and younger?  
·        Autoimmune diseases represent the fourth largest cause of disability among women in the United States? 

When you have a minute, read about the topic and register at the bottom of the page for the event.    We look forward to seeing you on February 19th!

And cheers to a happy and overall healthy 2016.

The organization does so by funding scholarships to scientists researching issues affecting women’s health; providing a forum for medical experts, scientists, doctors, researchers, and authors to convey the timely information on topics relevant to women’s health and the health of their families through its Lecture and Evening Series, and by funding research initiatives that will create women’s health awareness and advocacy in the community.
