Research With A Mission
Research with a Mission is an opportunity for Seattle Women’s to support health focused charitable organizations by donating on behalf of volunteer participants in clinical research studies.
Seattle Women’s: Health, Research, Gynecology is proud to present Research with a Mission, a new giving initiative designed to support women focused charitable organizations. Through this program, Seattle Women’s will make an anonymous donation on behalf of each volunteer who participates in a clinical research study at their site.
Each year Seattle Women’s will choose a non-profit organization, whose mission focuses on health, to be the recipient of the bi-annual donations. The 2012 recipient of Research with a Mission is Project Access Northwest, whose mission is to collaborate with providers in the health care community to open doors to medical and dental care for individuals with limited access.

“It is our hope that volunteers will not only be encouraged by the donation, but will also come to understand that taking part in research can provide women with a unique opportunity to contribute to better ways to maintain good health and treat disorders” - Dr. Kroll.
