Support Dr. Terry Wahls Clinical Trial through the University of Iowa Foundation
Partners Supporting Dr. Wahls’ research:
The Wahls Foundation has partnered with the University of Iowa to create THE WAHLS RESEARCH FUND. This fund is designated to support Dr. Wahls’ research and all funds raised will support the research in Dr. Wahls’ research lab.
The University of Iowa Foundation and the Wahls Research Fund
Many non-profits have very little oversight and high overhead costs, often spending less than half of the funds raised on their declared mission. The University of Iowa Foundation provides administrative oversight and support to the Wahls Research Fund – providing 95% of all donated monies to directly support research and education. When donating to the Wahls Research Fund through the University of Iowa Foundation, you receive a thank you note and receipt for tax purposes; Dr. Terry Wahls receives more funds to conduct her innovative research. You can be confident that your donation will be well-used, knowing that the fund is managed and monitored by professional staff who keep overhead costs at less than 5 percent.
How You Can Help
By Donating to the Wahls Research Fund, You Will Help:
- Educate more health care team members about the role of food in healing and health.
- Raise awareness about the small role genetics play in acquiring MS and other chronic health problems – only 5% – and the large role environment plays: 95% of the risk for acquiring MS and other chronic health problems is related to what we eat, poisons in our food and water, excessive levels of stress, and the quality of our social and family connections.
- Fund clinical trials that follow the impact of The Wahls Protocol®.
Having more full-time research staff will make it easier for Dr. Wahls to expand her work. More staff allows us to conduct more basic science studies, which will help to understand the mechanisms of why the interventions we use are so effective. Basic science studies cost $100,000; small feasibility and safety study costs $300,000; and research staff, dietitians, and post-doctoral scholars cost $50,000 to $100,000 per year, depending on their qualifications. All of these efforts cannot continue without your vital support. By donating, you become part of a team doing research that is changing lives and improving the future.
