Dr. Healy’s fate was sealed with the Red Cross board.
Dr. Bernadine Healy, leader of the American Red Cross during the 9/11 terrorist attacks nearly 10 years ago, has died at the age of 67.
Healy, who lived in a suburb of Cleveland, died Saturday at her home. Healy also launched the NIH's Women's Health Initiative, a $500 million project to study the causes, prevention, and cures of diseases affecting women.
In 1999, Healy took a job as president of the American Red Cross, but resigned two months after the Sept. 11th, 2001 terrorist attacks. Healy served as president of the American Heart Association and on the board of governors of the American College of Cardiology.
