Dr. Aguirre spoke about SCA's mission and the importance of care for women and SCA's work in international development. Christine McGrath, executive director of SCA, then gave a gracious and warm welcome to guest of honor, Mr. Ed W. Scott, Jr., philanthropist, former Senior U.S. Government official, and businessman. Mr. Scott spoke also about the crucial nature of care and development for women--particularly, the whole woman--for international development. [Mr. Scott's speech is coming.]
