Betty Reiser

I’ve practiced sound nutrition through diet, exercise and stress reduction for the majority of my life.

In 2002 I created a national program, "Survivors Teaching Students: Saving Women's Lives" around the issue of cancer. The program has been introduced in 65 medical schools. It gives third-year medical students the opportunity to meet ovarian cancer survivors and listen to their stories, to illustrate the difficulty of early detection. I am now embarking on another new program, "Aging and Volunteerism, the Benefits of Good Health." I'm excited to be creating, developing and implementing an important and critical aspect of wellness.

Until a few years ago I was also a tennis player, hiker and sculptor. Now stone carving is a little too strenuous, so I enjoy art at museums, and I read and travel. I'm so fortunate to be able to continue to be constructive and productive.
