served as co-chair of our task force on women in biomedical careers, has been a charter member of our advisory committee for research on women’s health at the National Institutes of Health, and has been working with us since the very beginning. I’m delighted she is here this evening to give us a wonderful kickoff for our AXXS 2002 conference. She will be introduced by Dr. Sally Shaywitz, professor of pediatrics at the Yale University School of Medicine, a member of the Institute of Medicine, and chair of the steering committee for the workshop.
