Date:10/27/2011

WHITE PLAINS, NY, OCTOBER, 2011 -- Dr. Jennifer L. Howse, President of the March of Dimes Foundation, has been elected to membership in the Institute of Medicine, the nation's premier advisory group on improving health.

"Being named to the Institute of Medicine is a great honor, and it acknowledges the achievements of Dr. Howse's career, as well as the important contributions of the March of Dimes to improving maternal, infant and child health," said Richard B. Johnston, Jr., M.D., Associate Dean for Research Development and Professor of Pediatrics at the University of Colorado School of Medicine, and a member of the IOM.

The Institute of Medicine is a unique not-for-profit, non-governmental organization established by the National Academy of Sciences in 1970 to provide independent, unbiased, evidence-based information and advice on issues in the medical sciences, health care, and public health. Its members are scientists and other experts who work together under a rigorous, formal peer-review system. The New York Times recently said of the IOM, "Its reports can transform medical thinking around the world."

"I am deeply honored to be selected to join the IOM, which includes many of the most transformational thinkers in science and medicine," said Dr. Howse. "I hope that my experience in leading nationwide public health campaigns in the areas of newborn screening, folic acid awareness, and preventing premature birth can contribute in a meaningful way to the dialogue."

Election to the IOM is considered one of the highest honors in the fields of health and medicine and recognizes individuals who have demonstrated outstanding professional achievement and commitment to service. New members are elected by current active members through a highly selective process that recognizes individuals who have made major contributions to the advancement of the medical sciences, health care, and public health.
