Our Bodies, Ourselves is seeking nominations for their "Women's Health Heroes" contest. I can think of many women I'd like to nominate and hope to have a chance to do so soon. Here is some more information about the contest from OBOS:
When you hear the words "Women’s Health Hero," who comes to mind? Your 9th grade health teacher who taught you about sexually transmitted infections? The midwife who sat with you through 15 hours of labor? The young Nigerian activist you read about who’s working to end gender discrimination in her country? Or maybe the neighbor who counter-protests at the abortion clinic every Saturday morning?
Whoever your heroes are, we want to know about them! 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.
Nominations are now being accepted. Please visit http://www.ourbodiesourselves.org/heroes.asp for more information.
