“We are grateful that S. T. Marx + Associates has contributed substantially to the development of the Center's work by providing invaluable insight, guidance and strategic vision. You have helped raise awareness of our mission and have helped develop a network of advocates and supporters in the United States. Most especially, you matched the work of Ormylia to the Global Center for Women's Health at the University of Pennsylvania, which has introduced us to new sources of private and foundation funding, and has provided added program support. You have also become an integral part of our strategy team, developing a vision for the Center's future and embarking on the next phase of our strategic plan.”
