The SI Oakland club has been so very proud to have had Kay Taylor as our president for the 2016-2018 terms. Under her confident and graceful leadership, the Oakland group grew remarkably and took on an impressive range of fundraising and service activities. As she closed out her term, President Kay addressed the new officer installation dinner on June 24 with a presentation on the whirlwind of activities that occurred in the last year under her leadership that you can see here.
Kay is trailblazer extraordinaire. She is a retired Kaiser OBGYN medical doctor. She was among the first waves of women entering medicine in the 1970s, and one of the very few to enter medical school as a mother of two. She extended her medical contributions internationally by founding and leading the non-profit volunteer organization Prevention International: No Cervical Cancer. PINCC was dedicated to stopping cervical cancer in developing countries, where it kills 800 women every day. Her teams of volunteers provided high-quality education and training at sites serving women in need in Latin America, Africa and India by establishing self-sufficient, affordable cervical cancer prevention centers.
President Kay, thank you on behalf of all of our members. Your shoes will be very hard to fill. We look forward to enjoying your continued leadership as a member of our great club!
