About the FFHA
The Foundation for Female Health Awareness is a non for profit 501(c)3 dedicated to educating women on their pelvic and breast health issues and needs. A unique team of healthcare providers has been put together to create and disseminate, in a very clear, unbiased, fashion bottom line gender specific pelvic and breast health content for women. While there is certainly an abundant coverage of women’s health topics both in print and on-line, consumers may actually face a dangerous lack of accurate, unbiased, bottom line information. The Foundation aims to be the “Consumer Reports” for Women’s Pelvic and Breast Health needs and education. With an eye for becoming the country’s most trusted source of direct honest real world information for women, the FFHA national advisory board directs and guides the development of all educational content. The board comprises top clinicians and researchers as well as lay women. This underscores the Foundation’s commitment to timely authoritative education for women of all ages. The Foundation is a grant giving foundation with money available to support projects that would stimulate new insights and advances in this endeavor.
The second object of the Foundation is to support timely research on a variety of pelvic and breast disease states. To date the Foundation has been responsible for funding multiple trials that are done through our research network which includes top academic institutions such as The Cleveland Clinic Foundation, Georgetown University, Stanford, Brown, Northwestern and Duke.
