We are proud to announce that Hope for Depression Research (HDRF) founder and Chair Audrey Gruss recently was honored at the 2019 Women of Distinction luncheon by Palm Beach Atlantic (PBA) University in Florida.

The luncheon, held February 19 at the Breakers Hotel in Palm Beach, is an annual event in its 28th year that honors women who have made significant contributions to the community. Proceeds fund scholarships for young women at the University.

In her remarks, Gruss told the 450 people gathered for the luncheon about her resolve to launch the Hope for Depression Research Foundation in 2006.   It was the pain of watching her own mother struggle with severe depression for over 30 years, Gruss explained, that opened her eyes to her life’s greater purpose.
