Champions Of Women's Health

Guests: Dr. Gloria Sarto, Professor Emeritus, OB/GYN, UW School of Medicine & Public Health
Myron Gadke, Mobile Imaging Manager, Marshfield Clinic

Saturday, May 1st, the Wisconsin Women's Health Foundation will honor 8 recipients as 2010 Champions in Women's Health at their 11th annual Spring Gala
at the State Capitol. Dr. Gloria Sarto and Myron Gadke are two of the awardees. On our program, Dr. Sarto shares some of her vast experience as a pioneer and leader in the women's health movement.

She highlights the journey women's health has undertaken from the Supreme Court ruling which allowed married women to use birth control pills in 1962 to the gender differences in health issues that have since been uncovered. Her advice: continued access and advocacy. Mryon Gadke joins the conversation describing how the mobile imaging program he developed at the Marshfield Clinic has delivered mammogram and bone density screenings to thousands of Wisconsin women in underserved rural areas.
