UGA students’ winning national public policy entry addresses homeless women’s hygiene

Master’s students Brianna Roberts and Phillip McAuley from the School of Public and International Affairs and Nicole La Tournous and Paula Buchanan from the College of Public Health won the top prize in the fourth annual Public Policy Challenge National Invitational in Philadelphia earlier this month. The winning proposal, called (fem)me, is a plan to distribute feminine hygiene products to homeless and transitional women in Athens and ultimately throughout the state of Georgia. In addition, (fem)me will serve as an education and advocacy organization to raise awareness about the lack of access to feminine hygiene products.
