Ullstrup to receive inaugural Woman of Courage Award

Christine Ullstrup, vice president of clinical services and programming for the Milwaukee-based nonprofit organization Meta House, will receive the first-ever Woman of Courage Award presented by the Wisconsin Alliance for Women’s Health.

Ullstrup, along with two other winners, will be recognized at the WAWH 10-year anniversary celebration on Thursday, Sept. 25 at the Wisconsin Institutes for Discovery in Madison.

Ullstrup was nominated in recognition of her outstanding leadership and commitment that has transformed the lives of thousands of women and families in the Milwaukee community. Meta House helps women struggling with drug and alcohol addiction to reclaim their lives and rebuild their families.

Her nomination included the following testimony: “Seeking treatment is a courageous decision that should be celebrated, and through her own personal story and her professional excellence, she demonstrates that recovery is real and possible. She offers us hope for a brighter future.”

The WAWH will also present the Woman of Commitment Award to Carousel Bayrd, the vice chair of the Dane County Board of Supervisors, and the Woman of Character Award to Alice Skenandore, the executive director of the Wise Woman Gathering Place in Green Bay.

The mission of the WAWH is to advance comprehensive women’s health in Wisconsin by engaging, educating, empowering and mobilizing individuals and organizations.
