Thank you to the conference planning committee and all of the wonderful volunteers who helped to organize OHEA's 39th annual conference and thank you to all of our sponsors! We also would like to thank everyone who came out to the conference and showed their #PHEcPride. We truly appreciate it, and could not have had such a great event without your support!
OHEA members were encouraged to bring feminine hygiene products to #OHEA2017 to help support Tampon Tuesday. We were very touched by the positive response and would like to thank all conference delegates for their generous donations.
On March 29th, OHEA President Cindy Hartman, P.H.Ec., delivered two large boxes full of feminine hygiene products to the London Food Bank on behalf of OHEA.
