Baylor College of Medicine's Huffington
Center on Aging,
at an annual Women’s Health Summit, honors an internationally acclaimed woman
with the Anne Morrow Lindbergh Award for Living with Grace and Distinction. The
recipient of this prestigious award serves as the keynote speaker during the
luncheon. Over the past years it has honored some incredible women including
Madame Jehan Sadat and Countess Patricia Mountbatten. The 2005 recipient of this
award is Her Imperial Majesty, Farah Pahlavi.
Women’s Health Summit began in 1997. This dynamic program offers up-to-date
information on issues relating to women’s health. An important component of this
program is the innovative format, which provides both an educational forum and a
fundraising awards luncheon to a very broad audience. The educational forum
features internationally recognized physicians and scientists who serve as
visiting professors to share the latest research and treatment discoveries in
their particular areas of expertise. This year's educational speaker was Dr.
Michael Hewitt who discussed "Living Younger Longer." At the luncheon five
were also honored for their vast philanthropic efforts in the community. These
women truly make a difference in the lives of their local Houstonians.
The award presented to Her Majesty is named after a true American
legend, Anne Morrow Lindbergh. Her accomplishments have touched many lives over
the years. During the time her famous husband, Charles A. Lindbergh, was making
history in American aviation, Anne was busy writing her beloved book, Gift From
the Sea, which has influenced women's lives for over thirty years. Her courage
and determination have made her a role model for women everywhere.
year's Summit was
chaired by Donatella Benckenstein and Mehrnaz Gill.
