Women’s Health Heroes: Your Heroes, Your Vote

womens_health_heroes

Welcome to the Our Bodies Ourselves Women’s Health Heroes Awards.

For the next four weeks, through May 1, we’re accepting nominations for health heroes — activists, doctors, bloggers, midwives, teachers … anyone who has made a difference in the lives of women.

All the info you need to proceed, including submission guidelines, can be found at http://www.ourbodiesourselves.org/heroes.asp

This page will feature the video and text nominations. Readers are invited to rate the entries by awarding stars; your vote will help determine the entry that receives the Audience Choice Award. OBOS staff will select the other winning entry.

Voting concludes May 8, and the winners will be announced May 11.

Both the winning entrants and their health heroes will receive a set of “Our Bodies, Ourselves” titles, including “Our Bodies, Ourselves”; “Our Bodies, Ourselves: Menopause”; and “Our Bodies, Ourselves: Pregnancy and Birth” — all of which will be signed by organizational co-founders, book editors and contributors. In addition, the health heroes will receive an engraved award for display.

Thank you for your participation! If you have any questions, please contact Wendy Brovold, OBOS communications and marketing manger: wendy@bwhbc.org or 617-245-0200 ×13.

    I can’t find the way to vote for the Fair Haven Women’s Health group….they are such a blessing for our community and for all those they serve. I know one of the midwives personally…she is a gentle, caring and dedicated resource — a giver and a source of knowledge and wisdom. They are all my heroes….5 STARS.
