Mission Statement

At the February 2003 Allied Support Group meeting, there was initial discussion among the members regarding a mission statement, operational issues and special areas of emphasis. It was decided to have a session during the September 2003 meeting with Dr. Saralyn Mark, Office of Women’s Health, DHHS, acting as a facilitator to further create a Missions Statement and agree upon a series of strategic initiative (see Allied Support Group Initiatives). The Mission Statement below was approved at the March 2004 meeting.
