September 27 - Dr. Norma Hubele, The Auto Professor
Norma Hubele is a tech entrepreneur and data scientist who has served as an expert witness in over 120 automobile safety cases. Drawing on 30 years of experience, she created an algorithm that transforms complex car crash data into a practical and personalized rating system: The Auto Grades. For the first time, her system rates cars separately between men and women, young and old drivers. As a full professor at Arizona State University, Dr. Hubele taught statistics to engineers and served as Director of Strategic Initiatives at the Fulton School of Engineering. She received her Ph.D. from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in New York.
Locally, Dr. Hubele was part of Phoenix Police Officer Jay Schecterle’s team of experts – in a case concerning the rear positioning of the gas tank in Police Interceptor vehicles. That case, and similar ones, were ultimately settled by Ford. Dr. Hubele and her husband Norman are sole proprietors of Refrac Systems, an engineering firm in Chandler.

St. Lukes on the Mountain Food Distribution
St. Mary's Food Bank provides a mobile food delivery service to partners like St. Lukes at the Mountain Church. Phoenix Rotary 100 partners with the church and with several Rotary Interact Clubs to distribute food to needy families twice a month (2nd and 4th Saturdays at 6:00am). Pictured here are some of these enthusiastic high schoolers who derive great joy from knowing what an impact they're making. Come join us....
Help pack medical supplies at Project C.U.R.E. The building is a warehouse located at 2100 W 14th Street, Tempe, 85281. Park on the east side and enter through the southeast door.
Project C.U.R.E.’s Cargo program delivers semi-trailer-sized cargo containers carrying medical donations to under-resourced hospitals, clinics and community health centers in developing countries. We manage a complex inspection, inventory and logistics process that annually places millions of dollars worth of medical supplies and modern equipment directly into the hands of doctors and nurses so they can provide quality care to their patients, many of whom are women and young children.
Project C.U.R.E. collaborates with community partners in each country to develop a high-level understanding of the scope of need. Our thorough, on-site assessment process ensures that every container delivered will meet the specific needs of the recipient hospital or clinic, equipping the medical staff with life-saving tools to improve diagnosis, treatment and care. Each 40' container delivers $400,000 worth of medical supplies and equipment on average, increasing access to healthcare for the most vulnerable populations in the world.
