Nominate Your Women’s Health Hero
Our Bodies Ourselves is holding its first ever Women’s Health Heroes Awards – Christine mentioned it back in March, and as of April 1, nominations will officially be open. The contest is intended 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.”
We’ve set up a special page to give the award details, including information on how to make a nomination, how the winners will be selected, and how to view others’ nominations. From the site:
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.
Submissions are due by May 1, which will be followed by voting through May 8, with winners to be announced on May 11. Nominations (in video or in words) can be submitted here online.
Please feel free to post information about the contest on your own blog or website – there are images on the site that you are free to download and use for these purposes.
