Special Invitation: Blog Tour with Teresa Heinz Kerry
I read this forum pretty regularly, but tend to be more of a lurker here. But I wanted you all to know about this special blog event we're doing to raise awareness of women's health and the environment. I hope some of you with your own blogs will be able to participate:


On April 20, 2007, in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, fourteen womens health and environmental experts will present the Womens Health and The Environment: New Science, New Solutions conference. An annual event in Boston since founder Teresa Heinz Kerry first convened it in 1996, it is now expanding to Teresas hometown of Pittsburgh. Sponsored by the Heinz Endowments, as well as Magee-Womens Hospital of UPMC and other health and environmental organizations, this one-day conference will explore various environmental topics that impact womens health.

The speakers range from scientists and doctors to cancer survivor and actress Fran Drescher and radio personality Steve Curwood. Find out more information at the conference website: .

To celebrate and raise awareness of this special event, Mrs. Heinz Kerry has agreed to participate in her first-ever blog tour. From April 9th through the 29th, twenty different blogs will have a chance to conduct an exclusive individual interview with Ms. Heinz on any topic relating to the impact of the environment on womens health.

Participating blogs will have the opportunity to ask 1-3 questions of Mrs. Heinz Kerry and receive a personal response. The blog then must post the interview and a link to the conference website on the scheduled day. A full schedule of the blog tour will be made available and posted at various sites as well, so this is also a chance to increase traffic to your blog.

Im just a volunteer and fan of Teresas. Im very honored to be allowed to coordinate this tour on her behalf. I hope you will join with me and help raise awareness of the conference and the very important womens issues under discussion.

If you want to be part of this special tour, please respond to me at the email address below BY MARCH 19, 2007. Include the following information:

1) Your name (wont be posted, but I like to know who Im corresponding with)
2) Your blog URL
3) 1-3 questions for Mrs. Heinz Kerry. These MUST pertain to the topic of womens health and the environment. I will screen all questions and remove any that are irrelevant or considered inappropriate for this tour.

I will let you know which day you are scheduled for and give you any other information you need. Im also available to answer questions as needed.

There are only 20 slots available, so please respond quickly. Im looking forward to including your blog on this tour.
