Women’s Health Heroes Awards
Nominations are now officially opened for Our Bodies Ourselves' first ever Women’s Health Heroes Awards. From OBO:
We’ve created the Our Bodies Ourselves Women’s Health Heroes awards to honor those who make significant contributions to the health and well-being of women. It’s a great way to publicly recognize people who make a difference in your life or the lives of others.
Who should I nominate?
You’re welcome to nominate yourself or anyone who has advocated on behalf of women's health. Possible nominees include, but are far from limited to, your nurse practitioner, a favorite blogger, a volunteer at the domestic violence shelter, the local activist who writes letters to the editor on the importance of health care reform, or a friend who supports you through day-to-day medical struggles. If you have a hero, we want to hear about that person.
The deadline for nominations is May 1, 2009 and the winners will be announced May 11, 2009.
