Important Work: Thank You
Link: Issue Highlights.
Just last Friday, I had the pleasure of speaking with Sheryl Silver, a journalist and editor, about an article she’s doing on Growing Great Employees for her career column.
In the course of our conversation, she told me about the work she’s been doing for almost four years, to pass legislation to support early detection of gynecological cancers. She began the work to honor her sister, Johanna, who died of ovarian cancer in 2000.
I was so touched at her herculean effort on behalf of her much-loved sister, and so grateful — as a woman — that she and her colleagues wended their way through all the political and social barriers to getting this legislation passed, that I wanted to share her story with you.
The link above is to an article that gives a bit more detail about the legislation, and here’s some more information about Johanna’s law at Sheryl’s website.
Thank you, Sheryl.
