Glenda Kane has been a public health advocate for 30 years.  She currently serves as chairman of the Texas Department of State Health Services Council, as well as a member of the MD Anderson Board of Visitors and other health-related institutions.  Throughout her career as a public servant, she has been involved in the United Services Organization (USO), having served as president, and was the first female commissioning chairman of a naval vessel, the U.S.S. Gonzalez.

Her major interests are cancer, having helped initiate the Blanton-Davis Ovarian Fund, as well as the Morgan Welch Inflammatory Breast program at MD Anderson, both of which were the first two comprehensive treatment programs for those diseases.  Her other major interest is mental health and substance abuse and their devastating impact on society; she is currently working on a re-design of the system in Texas.

Her advocacy is to give a voice to those who have no voice.
