March is not only recognized as MS Awareness Month but is also celebrated as Women’s History Month. MSAA would like to thank and honor all of the women who have contributed to the advancement of medical and scientific research.
Female scientists, although sometimes lesser known, have contributed much in the past to initiate innovations in the medical field and advance research efforts. The following article (not published by the MSAA) celebrates female scientific innovators: http://smithsonianscience.org/2013/03/five-pioneering-female-scientists-youve-probably-never-heard-of/.
MSAA would particularly like to honor all of those women who historically have worked and currently are working toward advancing research initiatives for MS.
