WASHINGTON, May 20 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The National Osteoporosis Foundation (NOF) will honor two-time Academy Award-winning actress and patient advocate, Sally Field; local D.C. celebrities and owners of FLEET FEET Sports, Phil and Jan Fenty; and founder and chairman of EmpowHer, Michelle King Robson, at its Silver Silhouette Awards Dinner this evening at the Ritz-Carlton in Washington, D.C.
