Dr. Elizabeth Tam
Pedro Haro, Executive Director in Hawai’i, chose to recognize an individual who has forever changed the lives of people in Hawai’i as well as positively impacted him personally. “For Women’s History Month I wanted to highlight someone who has truly made an impact within her community and beyond. Dr. Elizabeth Tam was not only a Professor and Chair in Respiratory Health at the University of Hawai‘i John A. Burns School of Medicine in Honolulu, but a trailblazer in lung health research for disparately affected populations."
Dr. Kathryn Blake
Darlene Hamilton, National Manager, Donor Relations in Florida wanted to share her personal experiences as a mother and highlight the passion for the work women in science are doing every day. “There are many women who have provided healing and promoted hope, especially as it pertains to lung health. As a mother who has two children with asthma, the health and safety of my children are my top priority, and chronic asthma can be difficult at times to manage. For that, I am grateful to all of the researchers who have made it their goals to improve lung health and asthma in children.
