iTWIXIE – Health Survey for Girls

unnamedIn partnership with Women and Girls Foundation HPV vaccine initiative, iTwixie is working  to learn more about girls health and wellness knowledge and they need your help! This short survey will help to evaluate what teens know about specific health topics.  The survey only takes a few short minutes and there are no right or wrong answers.  Please share with your organization, colleagues, friends, and any teens who are willing to participate!

This survey was spurred by Jewish Healthcare Foundation (JHF)’s partnership with the Women and Girls Foundation (WGF) and the establishment of a local chapter of Grandmother Power. More than a dozen inaugural members joined JHF President and CEO Karen Wolk Feinstein, PhD, in an 8:30 a.m. press conference.

“Grandmother Power,” said JHF President and CEO Karen Wolk Feinstein, PhD, “is not an organization, but a movement. It is groups of activist grandmothers in countries that include Finland, the United States, Kenya, Canada, and India. They’re working on separate issues in different communities, but they all have a common goal: providing a better future for grandchildren around the world.”

The activist grandmothers forming the Pittsburgh chapter of Grandmother Power will work to protect Pittsburgh’s grandchildren against cervical and other cancers caused by the human papillomavirus (HPV) by increasing the vaccination rate.
