• SPHF is pleased to announce the addition of three new members to the Board of Directors: Mandy BottkeChrista Fairbrother, and Lisa Welch. Each bring a history of advocacy for women’s issues and a wealth of knowledge about women’s healthcare needs. Please see their biographies on our Board Of Directors page located here.
  • In April, Karen Lyndel stepped down as Chair of our Board after 2 years serving in that leadership role. Karen is now pursuing a full-time education program. Carol Vitelli and Becky Turner are co-chairing the Board until a decision on a permanent Chair is made.
  • Diana Dell, MD, and Cailey Klasson, both long-time SPHF Directors serving in various key roles, announced they will step down in June. We are fortunate to have filled these vacancies proactively with the addition of the new directors mentioned above.
We thank Karen, Diana, and Cailey for all they have done for SPHF. Their contributions have placed the Fund in the position to help more women than ever. Their leadership and guidance have been priceless. We will miss them at meetings but know they will continue to support SPHF in new ways.
SPHF continues to take applications for additional board members. If you have time and talent, and want to make a huge difference in the lives of women in need, please complete an application here. A Board Member will be happy to discuss opportunities with you.
