Women's Health Foundation, POISE(R) Brand Look for Passionate Women's Health Advocates

Passion Award Winner to be Recognized at Annual "Below the Belt" Gala

CHICAGO, May 29 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Women's Health Foundation (WHF) has teamed up with the POISE(R) brand to recognize champions of women's pelvic health by announcing a call for entries to the Passion Award sponsored by POISE(R).

The Passion Award sponsored by POISE(R) acknowledges either a survivor or a pelvic floor champion. The survivor is a woman who has overcome pelvic conditions (i.e. incontinence or prolapse) through personal effort and found strength through pelvic fitness and lifestyle changes. The pelvic floor champion is a woman who is willing to share her story, inspires others and educates through harnessing her pelvic power.

"The annual Passion Award celebrates a woman who either overcame pelvic conditions or helps develop a sisterhood of strength by empowering women who struggle with pelvic health issues," said Missy Lavender, Women's Health Foundation CEO & Executive Director.

The 2008 winner was Linda Michael of Portage, Indiana who overcame incontinence after decades of pain and now is a vocal supporter of women taking proactive steps to live without pain.

"We hope that by celebrating the winner of the 2009 Passion award, other women will feel supported not only to seek the bladder control treatment that's right for them, but also to help eliminate the taboo often coupled with the topic by talking about it," said Joe Kuester, POISE(R) Senior Brand Manager.

The Passion Award winner will be applauded at the 5th Annual "Below the Belt" Gala, June 27, 2009 in Chicago, IL. "Below the Belt" is a memorable evening, which brings together the nation's most passionate champions of women's pelvic health in an intimate setting. In addition to a ceremony for the Passion Award recipient, Grammy-Award winning musicians and activists, the Indigo Girls, will be performing a private concert to attendees. The "Below the Belt" Gala helps further WHF's mission to provide life-enhancing strategies to achieve pelvic health and wellness for every woman.

Nominations call for a 250-word description of the nominee sent by June 17, 2009 and are available at or
