SUPPORT DR. TERRY WAHLS’ RESEARCH AT THE UNIVERSITY OF IOWA
The University of Iowa has created the TERRY WAHLS MD RESEARCH FUND to support Dr. Wahls’ research. All funds raised will support the research being conducted by Dr. Wahls’ research lab.
The University of Iowa Center for Advancement is a nonprofit organization on the University of Iowa campus that solicits private, tax-deductible contributions for all areas of the university, including the diet and lifestyle research for Dr. Terry Wahls. The University of Iowa acknowledges the UI Center for Advancement as the preferred channel for private contributions that benefit all areas of the university. When donating to the Dr. Terry Wahls Research Fund, you will receive a thank you letter and receipt for tax purposes from the University of Iowa Center for Advancement. You will be helping her team have more resources on hand to conduct more innovative studies that can change the standard of medical care. Thank you for your support!
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.
