Dr. Howell is best known for her contributions to palliative care. She was instrumental in founding San Diego Hospice, the first teaching hospice in the United States, and served on the Board of Directors since its inception in 1977, becoming Director Emerita in 1989.

Upon her retirement, Dr. Howell became involved in the founding of the Doris A.
