CHICAGO--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--Women’s Health Foundation (WHF) announced a reorganization and name change with its strategic shift to educating adolescent girls, ages 10-14 years, about pelvic health. Renamed To Know is To Know (TKTK) the nonprofit will educate girls and their grownups about all things pelvic. It will also conduct professional trainings and seek grant opportunities to expand outreach across the country. Karla Alegria, former Program Director at WHF has been named acting Executive Director. Missy Lavender, Founder and Executive Director of the former WHF, will serve on TKTK’s advisory board.
In conjunction with TKTK, new social enterprise Below Your Belt (BYB) L3C has been established to deliver its award-winning adolescent pelvic health educational materials digitally. The Below Your Belt app is in development as a “pre-sex ed” tool to bridge the gap between general health education and sex ed. Designed to help girls understand and manage their pelvic health, it includes bladder and bowel health, anatomy, function, nutrition, exercise, hygiene, ovulation and menstruation. Below Your Belt will be the first app to address women’s health in a comprehensive, age-appropriate way for girls.
Missy Lavender will head Below Your Belt as CEO. Elizabeth Wood, editorial director behind the book, Below Your Belt, will serve as BYB’s Chief Vision Officer/Creative Director.
WHF’s extensive pelvic health content, including its Healthy Pelvis Center and hundreds of blogs, will be transferred to HealthyWomen.org, the nation’s leading nonprofit health information source for women.
