Sharon Green

Patient Leader

Women's health has been the one unifying element throughout my career that has spanned public health, academic, research, nonprofit, and hospital positions. My advocacy started during the 1968 presidential campaign and was reignited during the Anita Hill hearings in the early 90s. During that decade I chaired a nationwide grassroots campaign that resulted in the first major jump in breast cancer research funding. Currently, the recent public discourse related to contraceptive coverage has reignited my advocacy . I believe women should make informed decisions about their own health and that the information we provide is based on good science and not by sound bites and celebrity causes.
