First and foremost, I have to say that I am thankful for all of the wonderful people in my life. I am grateful to have a wonderful family, amazing friends, and hardworking colleagues. As the Manager of the Ambassador Program, I work with so many wonderful colleagues that it took some time to determine how I was going to narrow down my list for purposes of a blog but here we go:
The first individual that I am highlighting is Ambassador Kay Chitty. Kay, a retired nurse and former Dean of the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga School of Nursing, has always been passionate about women’s health and the policies that impact the health of our state. Years ago, Kay was named a founding member of the Ambassador Program. Since then she has worked with our organization in nearly every way possible. Thank you, Kay!
I also want to give a big thank you to Ambassador Jan Collins. Jan is someone who takes action before the request is even made. Earlier this year, Jan authored a wonderful op-ed concerning the need to reform comprehensive health education in the public schools. Jan has the passion, expertise and eloquent articulation that brings to the forefront the common sense approach to solve any issue. Thank you, Jan!
Last but not least is a Tell Them
Ambassador that might ground me if I didn’t mention her - my mother, Mary Eatmon. Mary is constantly and consistently sending articles and notices of what reproductive health issues are being discussed in the Lowcountry. Recently, she provided public comment at a school district meeting advocating for better comprehensive reproductive health education. Thanks for everything, Mom!
I will close by saying I am thankful for every Ambassador of the Tell Them
network. These individuals tirelessly promote responsible reproductive health policies by providing testimony and public comment, authoring print articles, writing blogs, and hosting events. Happy holidays to Ambassadors and Tell Them
members! Gobble Gobble!
