Women Inspiring Scientific Progress
In collaboration with Banner Health,
WISP raises awareness of women's
and family health issues through
education and philanthropic support.
Women Inspiring Scientific Progress, known as WISP, is a giving circle dedicated to health issues affecting women and their families, including Alzheimer's disease and care giving. We aspire to be the premier organization of women leaders in Arizona focused on providing education and resources to promote women's health. Download a flyer about WISP.
