Yesterday, at their Fifth Anniversary event, the Women's Health Research Institute selected Chicago reporter Carol Marin to receive their first-ever Voice for Women Award. "If you look back at her history, she has been a trailblazer in reporting----she makes sure that women's health is on the agenda," stated Institute Director Teresa K. Woodruff, PhD. Marin is a political columnist for the Chicago Sun-Times, an editor for the Chicago NBC affiliate (WMAQ-TV), and a contributor to WTTW-TV Chicago Tonight.
In her acceptance, Marin stated "We're still way behind the eight ball in terms of being as progressive as we might be about gender. A lot of health issues are simplified. We don't go into them deep enough." To learn more about this event visit the Institute's redesigned website.
