Posted in Uncategorized by raisingwomensvoices on May 7, 2009

On Tuesday, April 28, the Wisconsin Alliance for Women’s Health held a Women’s Health Day of Action, an event co-sponsored by Planned Parenthood of Wisconsin and Raising Women’s Voices. Over 200 women’s health advocates gathered to strategize and prepare for the upcoming advocacy season.

Speakers included Teri Huyck, CEO of Planned Parenthood of Wisconsin; Barbara Lawton, Lieutenant Governor of Wisconsin; Sara Finger, Director of the Wisconsin Alliance for Women’s Health; and Eesha Pandit of Raising Women’s Voices, who gave the morning keynote address.

The aim of the day was to collectively advocate for women’s health.

Also included was a workshop for local high school students to bring the voices of young women to health care advocacy.
