Yearwood Speaks Out on Behalf of Women’s Health

Trisha Yearwood will serve as a celebrity spokeswoman for a national women’s health awareness campaign, “Bring Out the Beautiful You.” In the middle of a tour, the country singer will be in Washington, D.C., on Thursday (July 12) to tape an appearance on the PBS series, To the Contrary. Yearwood’s episode will air Sept. 30 and will focus on how women are affected differently than men by common illnesses such as cancer, heart disease and mental illness. Sponsored by the Society of Women’s Health Research, the “Bring Out the Beautiful” campaign kicks off in September and will run through the end of the year. 07/10/01
