We are so honored to announce that Lauren Gilchrist has been selected as the Planned Parenthood Action Fund’s 2016 Advocate Award winner for her bold and progressive leadership in support of women’s health and Planned Parenthood. We couldn't be more excited, here's why:
Lauren has been a dedicated friend and ally to Planned Parenthood and more than 60,000 women and men Planned Parenthood serves annually.
Whether serving as advisor to U.S. Senator Al Franken during his first term and now as Governor Mark Dayton’s senior policy advisor on health and human services, this native Minnesotan has always been committed to improving health in the communities she serves.
Lauren has worked tirelessly to demonstrate her commitment to creating opportunities for low income people and improve health for communities that experience health disparities.
"Lauren has made a tremendous impact on the policies that are now transforming the way this country approaches health care" - Sen. Al Franken.
