It brings me great sadness to say that Lucy Watson, President of LHI for over 10 years recently died. Lucy oversaw expansion of LHI’s health fairs and, during her tenure, moved the fairs to the Montrose Clinic (Legacy Community Health Services). With the help of a large Komen grant, LHI sponsored fairs throughout the city for diverse communities.
While she lead LHI, the organization added additional bone density and blood screenings, in addition to continuing mammogram screenings. Together with Pat Gandy, her long-time partner, she started distribution of a newsletter covering women’s health issues, and initiated first-of-their-kind Valentine’s galas for the Houston community.
Join in the celebration of her Life at 11:00 a.m. this Saturday, February 20th, at First Unitarian Universalist Church, 5200 Fannin, in the sanctuary.
