Shelby County’s Sheila Fawbush was one of 20 women from four countries honored last week for their work with women's health education.
Our Bodies, Ourselves, a Boston-based women's health organization, named Fawbush one of its Women's Health Heroes for 2009. She was among 100 nominees from 12 countries who were up for the award. Winners included authors, physicians, non-profit agency directors and teachers. She was the only Kentuckian to be honored.
