Kathi Salley Randall

A practicing neonatal nurse for over 14 years, Kathi Salley Randall's personal and professional passions took a new course as she began to learn about the link between toxic chemicals and serious health concerns, and the presence of these chemicals in the cleaning products and medical equipment used regularly in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU).

She has since become a clinical educator and founder of grnNICU, a consulting business to inform, inspire and empower other healthcare professionals to "green" neonatal units across the country. She also took her passion for a safer healthcare to new heights by participating in the Breast Cancer Fund's Climb Against the Odds to raise awareness around the high rates of cancer among nurses, and the plausible link to greater exposures to chemicals in the workplace.

For her dedication and innovative efforts to protect the health of newborns, the Breast Cancer Fund honored Kathi with the Andrea Ravinett Martin Strong Voice Award at our 2011 Heroes Celebration.
