MAHONEY--Margaret E. The Board of Directors and staff at American Skin Association (ASA) mourn the passing of its longtime friend and Board member -- Margaret E. Mahoney. For nearly two decades, Margaret was an active member of our Board and her advice and leadership were invaluable. Margaret devoted her career to work with philanthropies on issues concerning health, education, arts and humanities. ASA was fortunate to have Margaret as a member of our Education Council for many years and under her leadership, ASA was able to launch its award-winning public school program â€œThe Wonders of Skin: Looking Good, Being Healthy.â€ Margaret's efforts reached over 12 million children, teachers and parents. â€œHer dedication, leadership, and advocacy for children's education will never be forgottenâ€ said Howard P. Milstein, Chairman of ASA's Board. Margaret was the first woman to head a major foundation, The Commonwealth Fund, a national philanthropic foundation in New York City, where she had a distinguished career. A native of Nashville, Tennessee, Margaret graduated magna cum laude from Vanderbilt University and holds many honorary degrees from the nation's most prestigious universities. Margaret truly made a difference. ASA extends our heartfelt sympathy to her family, friends and colleagues. We will miss her. Howard P. Milstein Chairman Barbara A. Gilchrest, MD Acting President & Vice Chair George W. Hambrick, Jr. MD Founder & President American Skin Association
