Friday, May 15, 2009

Green Bay, Wis. - The Wisconsin Women's Health Foundation chose Breast Surgeon Colette Salm-Schmid, M.D., of Aurora BayCare Medical Center, as one of 10 Wisconsin women receiving the 2009 "Champions in Women's Health" Award.

Kat Rondeau, regional service line director for Aurora Health Care, earned the title in 2006.

The Wisconsin Women's Health Foundation created the "Champions in Women's Health Awards" to honor individuals who have demonstrated extraordinary leadership in women's health.

"We received Champions in Women's Health nominations from all over the state," says Sue Ann Thompson, Founder & President of the Wisconsin Women's Health Foundation. "After the difficult task of narrowing them down, we chose individuals who are instrumental in raising awareness of women's health issues, expanding the base of knowledge about women's health through their work, and impacting the quality of health care that Wisconsin women receive."

Other winners are from Madison, Milwaukee, Menasha, Wausau, Racine and South Range.
