Society of Friends: Spring 2019
Women’s Health Research at Yale’s Legacy Society began with a generous testamentary trust established in 1999 by Rosemary Hudson, one of the center’s original benefactors.
“There is no better way to honor a lifelong commitment to women’s health than with such a gift,” said WHRY Director Carolyn M. Mazure, Ph.D. “We are tremendously grateful for Rosemary’s thoughtful gift and honored to forever associate her name and legacy with our center.”
A former public school nurse, Rosemary established a health office at what is now Gateway Community College. She is a strong advocate for studies in women’s health, with a particular interest in studies of addictive behavior.
Through the Legacy Society, we hope to encourage bequests and other planned gifts that will provide lasting support for WHRY’s mission to improve the health of women through scientific investigation. Such commitments are needed to ensure that we continue to generate new research findings on women’s health and gender differences that can be translated into practical improvements for the benefit of everyone.
To be remembered as The Legacy Society founding member is a huge honor.
