After four years serving on the Board of Directors for the Patty Brisben Foundation, Liza Brackman is stepping away to focus on her family’s upcoming move to Florida. Liza has been instrumental in supporting PBF’s initiatives to enhance women’s sexual health and well-being, and we cannot thank her enough for her support.
“It has truly been an honor to serve on the board of the foundation for the last four years. Over the last decade, women’s sexual health has become more legitimized, less stigmatized and less taboo. Not only do I see discussions on social media, but I hear women talking – with friends, co-workers, acquaintances. I’ve overheard conversations about menopause at the airport and sex after breast cancer in a restaurant.
I consider myself fortunate for the opportunity to serve with my fellow board members, the experts on the medical board, and most of all, Patty. I will forever be inspired by their work to support cutting-edge treatments in women’s sexual health, improve diversity in medical research, and to expand the foundation’s reach both nationally and internationally.”
Why She Served
“Sexual health, to me, is about knowing and understanding my body and feeling comfortable in my own skin. This knowledge and understanding affects my overall physical health, my relationships with my husband and children, and my strength and empowerment as a female. A woman’s body should not be mysterious, and a woman’s sexuality should not be taboo. I’m honored to serve on the board of a foundation that seeks to raise funding for and bring public awareness to underfunded and underrecognized issues in women’s sexual health.”
