Thank you for participating in Creighton University Osteoporosis Research Center projects and seeking care for osteoporosis in the center. Without your trust and volunteerism, the center would not be able to advance the care of osteoporosis. We announced the establishment of an endowment for the Osteoporosis Research Center in 2006. It was called the “Recker/Pappajohn Endowed Research Fund”. This endowment was created to ensure that the work of the Osteoporosis Research Center will continue into the future. The endowment needs broad support in order to sustain patient care and research in the center.
With this letter we announce that the name of the Endowment has been changed to the “Sister Anne Evers Endowed Research Fund”. We have done this to honor Sister Anne Evers, a 93 year old nun with severe osteoporosis. Sr. Anne taught grade school for many years in the midwest and is a strong supporter of the Osteoporosis Research Center.
You are invited to contribute to this endowment. You may contact Susan Recker at 402-280-4810 if you have questions. You may send a contribution to the: “Sister Anne Evers Endowed Research Fund”, and mail to the Osteoporosis Research Center, 601 N. 30th, Suite 4820, Omaha, NE 68131.
Dr. Robert R. Recker
