In the latest MLM Legal News, the Mary Kay Foundation recently honored Dr. Jerry Shay with a $250,000 gift to the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center for women’s cancer research. Dr. Shay sits on the foundation’s board as the Research Review Committee Chair, which helps the Mary Kay Foundation discover which programs have the best research ideas in women cancer’s research. Dr. Shay has led the Grant Research Review Committee for over two decades. The gift will establish a Distinguished Professorship in Women’s Cancer Research at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center. The Mary Kay Foundation created the endowment to show their appreciation to Dr. Shay and the college for partnering with them and helping create the foundation’s research portfolio. The donation aligns with Mary Kay’s continued philanthropic efforts to support women who suffer from domestic violence and funding cancer research to prevent women from dying. The Mary Kay Foundation donates $100,000 every year to medical institutions. They have donated over $23.5 million to these two charitable causes to date.
Dr. Shay has dedicated his life to researching aging and cancer. He is the Professor and Vice Chairman of the Department of Cell Biology at the college. Dr. Shay also serves as the Program Director of the Cancer Biology Graduate Program and is known as one of the “Doctors of the Decade” by Thomson Reuters ScienceWatch. The doctor is one of the most cited authors in the area of General Biomedicine.

With the help of a team of scientists, Mary Kay developed high-quality beauty and skincare products at an affordable price. The company sells a range of beauty products including skin care, makeup, fragrance, gifts, and men’s products. Mary Kay also works with other medical experts and dermatologists outside of the company to test products and make sure they are all safe to use. Customers can choose from over 200 premium products in their store or order through their Mary Kay Independent Beauty Consultant.
