When we asked Lynne Zoller, SHF Board Secretary, what draws her to our mission, she said, "Serving on the Sisters Health Foundation Board is a privilege. I am a registered nurse so the health of our communities is very important to me. Being able to participate in awarding grants that help promote food security, dental health, healthy life styles and life -saving equipment is rewarding. Many times the grant allows the group to access additional funds through matching monies. In addition, collaboration has been built among groups so that new projects can be planned in the future. I look forward to being a part of the good work being done by the Sisters Health Foundation in the future." Thank you, Lynne, for being a part of our mission! ... See MoreSee Less
