DES Daughter Nominated for 2011 Presidential Citizens Medal!

9 Oct

DES Daughter and WONDER DRUG Screenwriter Caitlin McCarthy

WONDER DRUG screenwriter Caitlin McCarthy has been nominated for the 2011 Presidential Citizens Medal. Because of Caitlin’s efforts and work with the offices of Senators Kerry and Brown, the FDA finally acknowledged DES as a “tragedy” in 2011 after 40 years. Caitlin also champions DES awareness through her screenwriting, blogging, activism, public speaking, and government/media relations.

The Presidential Citizens Medal is the second highest civilian award in the United States, second only to the Presidential Medal of Freedom. The winners will be announced before the end of 2011 — but as they say, it’s an honor to be nominated.

If people would like to express their support of Caitlin McCarthy’s nomination for a 2011 Presidential Citizens Medal for her work on the DES issue, please Tweet the White House (@whitehouse) and/or send a message via this webform to the White House: http://www.whitehouse.gov/contact

    I agree Caitlin, this would be a fitting and well deserved recognition of all you have done for those affected by DES in the U.S, Canada, Europe, and Austrailia.
