Can you imagine completing one or two surveys every year for 35 years? That is exactly what Lois Laumann Phillips, CHH ’55, has done since she agreed to be part of the Nurses’ Health Study. In 1976, Lois, a public health nurse in Baltimore County, was among 170,000 nurses selected to be part of this ongoing study, which Donna Shalala called “one of the most significant studies ever conducted on the health of women.'” In the name of research, thank you to Lois for her dedication and commitment.
