Council for Excellence in Women’s Health


The mission of the Council for Excellence in Women’s Health is to improve the physical and mental health of women in San Antonio.


Your work is instrumental in helping forge relationships between The University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio and key constituents throughout the region and state.  To this end, we ask you and your fellow volunteers:

  • Learn about the women’s programs and initiatives at the Health Science Center
  • Serve as our sounding boards and act as “eyes and ears” in the community to help the Health Science Center fulfill its mission for excellence in Women’s Health.
  • Enlist other community leaders to serve as volunteers in support of Health Science Center women’s initiatives
  • Participate in Women’s Leadership Committee meetings and other appropriate events
