GRAPHICS CHALLENGE WINNERS!
Congratulations to Abbey Morris, Lina Cellante, and Shauna Lee Lange for their winning graphics! The challenge was to submit a graphic that combined International Women's Day and Health Science, and these two hit it out of the park. Their work will be featured on mugs and tote bags in the Cochrane Store (available soon!).
#1 - Abbey and Lina: Three diverse women strike the #BreakTheBias pose; the women are stacked on top of one another so their crossed arms form a double helix. The remaining DNA strands are filled in with science-themed doodles.
#2 - Shauna: This pen and ink piece has to do with the personal geographies of women navigating their own bodies, health science, and economic access within what seems at times like an ocean wave or radio wave of fluidity. It represents the collaborative of women, building on each other's successes, and rising to higher peaks of understanding.
ANNE ANDERSON WALK
The Annual Anne Anderson Walk is a cherished annual social event in Cochrane, where attendees walk throughout March to celebrate women's contributions to Cochrane while raising money to annual Anne Anderson Award. Everyone is welcome to snap a picture of themselves and share their walk with the Community. Pictures will be posted on social media and the website as we encourage each other to get out on a walk - everyone is welcome to join in!
