Dr. Bernadine Healy ’65, the first woman to head the National Institutes of Health, delivered the address at Vassar’s 128th Commencement.  Noting the advances made by medical technology in the last 50 years, she said, “Today we are confronting the economic challenge—the dollar cost—of the extraordinary success of the wonders of biology and medicine.  But tomorrow we will confront ethical, social and moral challenges that will make the problems of economics we are facing now seem very easy.”     The New York Times
