Interested in being on the HER Foundation Board?

The HER Board meets quarterly and aims to have an annual meeting in Los Angeles in the fall each year. Board leadership evaluates annually the number of members and needs of the Foundation to determine if additional members are needed. HER aims to have a board with diverse skills and backgrounds from finance and business, to technology, policy and health care. All HER Board members have experience with HG and a passion for the cause.

New members are invited as the need arises, though anyone may email the Foundation a resume for consideration. Member qualifications include willingness and time to participate in quarterly meetings, capability to initiate and contribute to projects monthly and as needed, ability to attend or support medical conferences or HER events periodically, and skill and/or education that offers substantial value to the mission and goals of the Foundation. Alternatively, you can apply to be on the Advisory Council if you have unique expertise related to HG not otherwise represented by the Board members and/or Advisory Council.

HER welcomes diversity and desires to add additional representation from outside the US. HER has a global vision and endeavors to support and improve the care of all women with HG.
