Previous Foremothers and Health Policy Heroes

The National Research Center for Women and Families’ annual awards luncheon is when we take time off from our health advocacy, research and public education to thank women and men who have improved our lives.

The Foremother Award recognizes women for their lifetime achievements. It celebrates women, who in the face of discrimination, were able to expand horizons, improve communities, help some of society’s most vulnerable citizens, and make notable contributions to our nation as a whole. It is our way of saying “Thank you” and letting them know how much we appreciate them, how much we love working with them or admiring their accomplishments from afar, and what an honor it is to follow in their formidable footsteps.

In addition to showing our appreciation for our amazing Foremothers, we also recognize Health Policy Heroes. This award honors men and women who have helped to improve the lives of adults and children nationwide by supporting health policies that help protect lives and improve medical care for us all.
