Carol Marin recognized for integrity in reporting

Carol Marin Accepting Voice for Women Award

Yesterday, at their Fifth Anniversary event,  the Women’s Health Research Institute selected Chicago reporter Carol Marin to receive their first-ever Voice for Women Award.  “If you look back at her history, she has been a trailblazer in reporting—-she makes sure that women’s health is on the agenda,” stated Institute Director Teresa K. Woodruff, PhD.   Marin is a political columnist for the Chicago Sun-Times, an editor for the Chicago NBC affiliate (WMAQ-TV), and a contributor to WTTW-TV Chicago Tonight.

In her acceptance, Marin stated “We’re still way behind the eight ball in terms of being as progressive as we might be about gender.  A lot of health issues are simplified.  We don’t go into them deep enough.”  To learn more about this event visit the Institute’s redesigned website.
