You’re invited to a Women’s History Month Kickoff event honoring UNTHSC’s Linda Cunningham, MD, as the Fort Worth/Tarrant County Minority Leaders & Citizens Council Outstanding Woman of the Year
Dr. Cunningham, adjunct assistant professor of pathology and anatomy, will present the Hattitude: Hats Off to Women 2007 keynote address, “A Mile in Her Shoes,” at 10:30 am on Saturday, March 3, at the Fort Worth Central Library Theatre, 500 West 3rd St., downtown. Although the event, which is co-sponsored by the Minority Leaders & Citizens Council and the Health Science Center, is free and open to the public, invitations are available from Liz Davis in the Graduate School Office of Outreach, EAD 228.
Eleven other women will be recognized at the event for their community leadership and service. One of them is Marian Eastman, a retiree of UNTHSC’s Department of Molecular Biology and Immunology and co-founder of Fort Worth’s Jubilee Theatre with her late husband, Rudy Eastman.
Health Science Center employees who served on the event’s planning committee include Betty Belton, Cynthia Booker, Liz Davis, Jackie Hubbard, Stella Fair, Katie Flemming-Ford, Opal McIntosh and Ywanda Kimbrough.
Hattitude began as a Fort Worth Public Library event in 2001 and has grown into a citywide celebration of women during Women’s History Month in March. A variety of Hattitude activities are organized and sponsored each year by the library, Fort Worth Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, Women’s Resource Center of TCU, Cultural Centre of the Americas, Fort Worth Commission for Women, Fort Worth/Tarrant County Minority Leaders & Citizens’ Council, National Cowboys of Color Museum, National Cowgirl Museum and Hall of Fame, Network for Executive Women, and the YWCA of Fort Worth and Tarrant County.According to www.hattitude.org , the group’s mission is “to celebrate Women’s History Month with a tip of the hat to women for all the roles they play, their accomplishments, and their invincible spirit,” and the group’s name “was sparked by the book Crowns by Michael Cunningham, a photographic portrayal of church women styling their hats/crowns as a representation of who they are.”
