This Month’s Features on Life Love & Health

Women’s Health Foundation & Kimberly-Clark: Poised for Pelvic Health

In “Poise,” we hear from Linda Michael, an outspoken advocate for the pelvic floor therapy program at the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago. Linda found this treatment after enduring 28 years of urinary, vaginal and musculoskeletal pain following a difficult childbirth. Thanks to her tireless public awareness work for pelvic health, Linda was awarded the Women’s Health Foundation’s first annual Passion Award, underwritten by Kimberly-Clark Corporation, whose Poise brand of absorbent pads helps millions of women live with urinary incontinence.
