Join your ACOG colleagues to support women’s health and help reduce teen and unplanned pregnancy!
ACOG’s Run/Walk for Women’s Health highlights the excellent work of the Healthy Futures Texas program, which is devoted to reducing teen and unplanned pregnancy. This program was founded by Dr. Janet Realini, who will be honored at our 2018 Annual Meeting.
Dr. Realini is a nationally recognized physician devoted to reducing teen and unplanned pregnancy. After a successful career in academic family medicine, she served as Medical Director of Family Planning at San Antonio Metropolitan Health District, where she founded the City of San Antonio’s teen pregnancy prevention program, Project WORTH.
Dr. Realini authored Big Decisions, a Texas-friendly, “Abstinence-Plus” sexuality curriculum for teens, which is used by a growing number of Texas school districts and community agencies. In 2006, Dr. Realini founded Healthy Futures.
The 5K run/walk, which begins and ends in the Palazzo of the Austin Convention Center, will take you along the famous Lady Bird Lake Trail found in the heart of the Austin downtown. The course will feature both urban and nature landmarks including the Austin City Hall, The Independent Tower, Pfluger Pedestrian Bridge, Stevie Ray Vaughn Statue, Green Belt trails, The Long Center, Congress Ave bridge, and much more. This route gives participants a center-cut experience of the Austin downtown, with a perfect running path that is safe and accommodating! (There are no cross streets involved in the run and there will be guides running with the group, along with stationed along the course, to ensure that everyone has a great run that is safe and enjoyable.)
