Phyllis Stern
Department of Family Health Care Nursing, Indiana University School of Nursing, USA (Counsel General Emerita)

While Phyllis was Director of Dalhousie University School of Nursing in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada, and Editor of Health Care for Women International (HCWI), her interest in the welfare of women worldwide inspired her to organize the first International Congress on Women’s Health Issues, held in the Lord Nelson hotel in Halifax in 1984. The enthusiastic response of attendees prompted the formation of ICOWHI. She served as Council General until 2000, and remains an honorary member of the Board of Directors.
