2018 Foremother and Health Policy Hero Awards Luncheon

National Center for Health Research, May 4, 2018

Friday May 4 is our Annual Awards luncheon at the Mayflower Hotel!

Every year, we take time off from our research and public education to thank women and men who have improved our lives.

The Foremother Lifetime Achievement Award recognizes women who expanded women’s horizons, improved our communities, and made remarkable contributions to our country.  We let them know what an honor it is to follow in their formidable footsteps.

We also recognize Health Policy Heroes. This award honors men and women (and in this case, boys and girls) who have changed the public debate and public policies in ways that help to improve the lives of adults and children nationwide.


Please join our wonderful Emcee Maureen Bunyan as we celebrate

2018 Foremothers Lifetime Achievement and Health Policy Heroes Awards Luncheon

Friday, May 4, 2018 at Noon
The Mayflower Hotel
1127 Connecticut Ave NW
Washington, DC 20036
We hope you will join us at the elegant Mayflower Hotel in Washington, D.C. as we celebrate these inspiring honorees.

Help us celebrate the amazing women who are our 2018 Foremother Lifetime Achievement honorees for careers that made all our lives better and broke down barriers for other women:

Dr. Rita Colwell is an extraordinary scientist whose work has successfully fought cholera and created safer water supplies around the world, saving lives while breaking down many barriers for women in science. She was the first woman to serve as Director of the National Science Foundation (NSF), presiding over a doubling of the NSF budget. She has won numerous other scientific awards over more than 40 years, including the National Medal of Science presented by then-President George W. Bush, and the Medal of Distinction from Columbia University. She previously served as the President of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) and is a member of the prestigious National Academy of Sciences (NAS).

Lynn Povich is an award-winning journalist who began her career as a secretary at Newsweek magazine. She was one of 46 women who filed sex discrimination charges against the magazine in 1970, an experience that 40+ years later inspired her book THE GOOD GIRLS REVOLT, and the Amazon TV series that was soon followed by #MeToo. The law suit was groundbreaking, and she subsequently became the first woman appointed Senior Editor at Newsweek. Ms. Povich later became Editor-in-Chief of Working Woman magazine and then joined as East Coast Managing Editor. She also edited a book of columns by her father, famous sports writer Shirley Povich.  She serves on the Advisory Boards of the International Women’s Media Foundation, the Women’s Rights Division of Human Rights Watch, and the CUNY Graduate Center Foundation Board.

Our Health Policy Heroes are the students, teachers, and parents of Parkland, Florida; Washington, D.C. metro area; and across the country who are successfully fighting for effective policies to prevent gun violence. MSD High School student Kai Koerber and Parkland teacher Susan Rioux will be two of the heroes accepting the award on their behalf. Kai has been actively lobbying for better gun policies since the tragic shooting on February 14. Ms. Rioux is credited with having taught Parkland students how to find safety in violent situations, thus saving their lives during the February 14 shooting. She is now one of those helping the children cope with PTSD and fear in the aftermath and supporting their efforts to reduce gun violence. March for Our Lives Lodging, a group of mothers who organized free housing, meals, and other necessities for thousands of students and families traveling to D.C., will also be honored.


We hope you will take advantage of this great opportunity to meet these inspiring women, previous honorees, and many of D.C.’s other movers and shakers. Lunch is from noon to 1:30, preceded by a 11:30 champagne reception for honorees, patron guests, and sponsors only.

Prices below are valid through April 28.

Seats are limited and tickets are not available at the door.

Regular lunch tickets are available for a donation of $110 each. Patron Tickets ($175 per ticket) include a champagne reception with honorees at 11:30, priority seating, and a listing in the program. A Patron table for 10 is $1,750. Sponsorships are also available, from $1,800-$6,000.

The National Center for Health Research is the leading national organization dedicated to improving the health and safety of all adults and children. Donations for this event support our Cancer Prevention and Treatment Fund helpline.

Running and skin cancer prevention

By Danielle Pavliv

Exercise reduces your risk of cancer and many other diseases, but running outdoors can increase your risk of skin cancer if you don’t follow a few simple rules.

Running is one of the most popular forms of exercise. It can be done anywhere, doesn’t require a gym or any special equipment (although some people prefer to use a treadmill)-just a good pair of shoes and comfortable clothing. Running outside — whether on a track, in the woods, or on a path by the river — can be a wonderful and restorative way to exercise. Nature and exercise are both great ways to improve your mood.

Running regularly can lower the risk of many health problems including heart disease, stroke, osteoporosis and bone fracture, diabetes, and obesity.[end Warburton DE, Nicol CW, Bredin SS. Health benefits of physical activity: The evidence. Canadian Medical Journal. 2006; 174(6):801-809.] In addition, it can improve mental health and blood pressure.[end Paluska SA, Schwenk TL. Physical activity and mental health: Current concepts. Sports Medicine. 2000;29(3):167-180.] However, many people don’t take proper precautions when they decide to go running outside, and the results can be deadly.

Imagine this: it’s a nice day outside, so you decide to go for a jog, wearing running shorts and a t-shirt. You probably don’t spend too much time thinking about what to wear — you simply notice what the temperature is, put on something comfortable, and go. Sunscreen seems like a hassle, and you think you’ll probably sweat it off anyway. It’s not like you will be laying out at the pool or playing golf all day, so how much harm can a 30-minute run cause anyway?

While many of us try to protect our skin when spending time outside, data show that just over half of all American adults usually take at least one of these three precautions:  seeking shade, using sunscreen, or wearing sun-protective clothing.[end Sun-Protective Behavior Rates. Skin Cancer. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. August 2011. Available at:] People who don’t do any of these are at much higher risk for skin cancer.

Skin cancer

Skin cancer is the most common of all cancers. In the U.S., accounting for almost half of all cancers and affecting over 2 million people each year. One in 5 Americans will develop skin cancer during their lifetime.[end Robinson JK. Sun exposure, sun protection, and vitamin D. Journal of the American Medical Association. 2005;294(12):1541-1543.] There are three types of skin cancer: basal cell, squamous cell, and melanoma. Basal cell carcinomas are the most common type of skin cancer. They rarely spread to other areas of the body, and are very treatable. Squamous cell carcinomas, on the other hand, can spread to organs and other areas in the body and can be fatal if they are not caught early. The third type of skin cancer, melanomas, are the least common but most dangerous — they kill more than 8,600 Americans every year.[end Skin Cancer Statistics. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. April 2012. Available at:] If found early, however, melanomas can be treated. Melanomas are most often caused by ultraviolet radiation from the sun or tanning beds. They usually resemble moles and are often black or brown. Most change over time, including an increase in size.[end National Cancer Institute. Signs and symptoms of melanoma. U.S. National Institutes of Health. January 11, 2011. Available at:] In recent years, incidence of melanoma has increased significantly, especially in those with fair skin. While melanoma is more prevalent in men than women, rates of diagnoses and death are increasing for both men and women.

Is exercising outside more risky than just relaxing outside?

In 2006, Dr. Christina Ambros-Rudolph and colleagues at the Medical University of Graz in Austria conducted a study to see if marathon runners are at higher risk of melanoma than people who don’t run as regularly.[end Ambros-Rudolph CM, Hofmann-Wellenhof R, Richtig E, Müller-Fürstner M, Soyer HP, Kerl H, Dermatol A. Malignant Melanoma in Marathon Runners. Archives of Dermatology. 2006;142(11):1471-1474.] They examined over 200 runners and found that they are at increased risk for skin cancer. In fact, runners who trained the most intensively had the highest rates of skin lesions. Almost all of the athletes wore shirts and shorts that did not totally cover their arms, back and legs, and only 56% wore sunscreen. Although there was a clear link between sun exposure and skin lesions, the researchers found another reason the athletes who had more intense workouts were more prone to skin cancer. Endurance exercise such as long-distance running suppresses immune function in the body, which is why extreme athletes are often more susceptible to infections than others. This can release a type of protein called cytokines, limiting the ability of the body’s immune system to fight off potential cancers. In addition, sweating a lot while outside is linked to skin cancer. The wetter your skin, the more UV rays are absorbed, which means that exercising on sunny days can be much more dangerous for your skin than just sitting or laying down in the sun.

How to stay safe outside

You don’t have to give up running outside — there are plenty of ways to protect yourself outside for exercise or any other activity. Try to do as many of these as possible each time you go out in order to lower your risk for melanoma or other types of skin cancer:

  • Use a generous amount of sunscreen with a sun protection factor (SPF) of 30 or higher, even on cloudy days — cloud cover only blocks out one type of UV rays. Reapply often, especially if you are sweating or in the water. Use a water-resistant sunscreen that will stay on when you swim or sweat.
  • Avoid the sun between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m., when UV rays are the strongest. If you want to go for a run outside, try to do it early in the morning or right before sunset.
  • Put on some sunglasses with high UV absorption to protect your eyes, and a hat to protect your face.
  • Wear clothes made of tightly woven fabrics that you cannot see through. Try to avoid regularly exposing areas of your body such as your shoulders, neck and chest. To prevent overheating, wear light-colored clothing that reflects the sun’s rays.
  • Look for shade: try to do your stretches and other exercises in a shaded area.

Choosing a sunscreen

The American Academy of Dermatology recommends that everyone wears a water-resistant sunscreen of at least 30 SPF daily.[end American Academy of Dermatology Sunscreen Website. Stats and Facts. Prevention and Care. Sunscreens. 2012. Available at:] Further, they recommend using a broad-spectrum sunscreen that protects against both types of UV rays (UVA and UVB). You can use the Environmental Working Group’s website to find out which sunscreen really work and don’t contain a lot of harmful and even cancer-causing ingredients. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) didn’t regulate sunscreen until June 2012. Prior to that date, there was no guarantee that the sunscreen you were slathering on your body actually protected you or did what the label claimed. Now, manufacturers are required to label their products accurately and are held to safety and effectiveness standards.[end FDA sheds light on sunscreens. U.S. Food and Drug Administration. June 2012. Available at:] When choosing a product, remember that a sunscreen with twice the SPF does not mean you can stay outside in the sun twice as long before you get a sunburn. The intensity of UV radiation matters just as much as how long you are in the sun, which is why it’s so important that you limit your exposure from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.[end Jou PC, Feldman RJ, Tomecki KJ. UV protection and sunscreens: What to tell patients. Cleveland Clinic Journal of Medicine. June 2012;79(6):427-436.]

Make sure to regularly check your body for any new moles or scaly patches. If they change size, form or color, visit a dermatologist. If you have skin cancer in your family, you will likely want to get your moles checked regularly.

Sun damage is permanent and irreversible, so it’s important to take good care of your skin throughout your life. Remember — a tan is a sign of skin damage. There’s no such thing as a “healthy” tan!

Walking with a hope of a cure for cancer

May 2015

On Saturday, April 25th, Sherina Garner walked her own 5K fundraiser in memory of her mother, Valerie Veney, who died from lung cancer. Fourteen people donated $453 to her cause, which Sherina then matched, raising a total of $906 for the National Center for Health Research and its main program, Cancer Prevention and Treatment Fund. We would like to thank Sherina Garner for her hard work and dedication, and most importantly, for taking action to help children and adults reduce their risks of cancer.

Sherina writes about her mother, Valerie Renee Veney: “She was a loving, kind woman with a beautiful smile. She passed away from lung cancer at the young age of 59, leaving behind her two children (Sherina and Tycho, Jr.) and husband of 43 years who loved her so much that a year later, he passed away, too.”

“She was a phenomenal woman who worked hard every day and cared for her family, even when cancer was growing in her body. From her 23 years of work as a Youth Correction Officer in the Youth Service Administration of the District of Columbia Government, it was clear that she was dedicated to helping people, especially children. She raised her grandson and assisted numerous young people, both in her community and at work.”

“When she found out she was sick with lung cancer, it was already stage 4. It was a surprise to her family that she had end-stage lung cancer. She was strong even up until her death. She was able to communicate with her family what she wanted at the end of her battle, and the Lord took her home peacefully. Before passing, she said: Let people know those cigarettes are killing your lungs slowly. Lung cancer is an awful pain to have.”

She was a mother, wife, sister, cousin, friend that was gone too soon.”

“Another turning point, a fork stuck in the road. Time grabs you by the wrist, directs you where to go. So make the best of this test, and don’t ask why. It’s not a question, but a lesson learned in time. It’s something unpredictable, but in the end is right. I hope you had the time of your life. 

So take the photographs, and still frames in your mind. Hang it on a shelf of good health and good time. Tattoos of memories and dead skin on trial. For what it’s worth, it was worth all the while. I hope you had the time of your life.”
