Who We Are and Why We're Here...
ProjectAWARE was created by women, for women.
The "Association of Women for the Advancement of Research & Education" was an idea born out of frustration, frustration regarding lack of beneficial and comprehensive health care information available to women today. So two womenone from Kansas and one from New Yorkwith the same idea came together in an effort to get that information to as many women as possible.
That was in 1997. ProjectAWARE has grown to the website you see today, maintained by 8 dedicated people, some of whom are health professionals. Mostly Americans, we hail from several parts of the US and the worldfrom California to Canada to Thailand (our website editor is a transplanted Iowan living in Bangkok). Perhaps what makes ProjectAWARE even more special is that everyone is a volunteer.
In 1998 ProjectAWARE became a nonprofit corporation based in Kansas. However, we all work as a team from our home computers. Not always easy, but we manage!
To cover the costs involved in keeping an Internet presence, ProjectAWARE has come to rely on financial donations of sponsors, supporters, and friends. Our content is is no way driven, or influenced by, any of the sponsors whose logos appear on our site.
Founded in 1997, Project AWARE is a nonprofit organization dedicated to providing menopausal and premenopausal women with complete and comprehensive information regarding all resources, therapies, and research data currently available, so that armed with this knowledge, women can make informed decisions regarding every healthcare option.
Our fervent hope is that the following goals will further this ideal.
