SPIRIT OF WOMEN AWARDS HELD AT UIC
The first Spirit of Women Dream Catchers Awards, sponsored by the University of Illinois at Chicago's National Center of Excellence in Women's Health, will be presented Thursday, Nov. 1. The awards recognize community heroes - women who have made contributions to work, family and health - that have affected the lives of others. The winners will be announced at a noon ceremony, and all honorees will be recognized at a reception at 5:30 p.m. Both events will be held at UIC in the Illinois Room of the Chicago Circle Center, 750 S. Halsted St.
The three categories for nominations include: a youth recipient aged 14-21; a community recipient aged 22 and over; and a women's health care provider. Ten women will be honored in these areas, and three regional winners will be selected to participate in the national event held in Scottsdale, Ariz., in April.
The Spirit of Women Awards, held in conjunction with the UIC Women's Leadership Symposium, is a national program that celebrates ordinary women accomplishing extraordinary feats. The national Spirit of Women network comprises leading hospitals with programs of excellence in women's health. UIC Medical Center is the only hospital in Chicago with this distinction.
