Elizabeth Noble Award

Elizabeth Noble is the founder of the Section on Women’s Health, (then the Section on Obstetrics and Gynecology) and served as its first Chairman. She was a driving force behind the development of the field of obstetric and gynecological physical therapy in the United States. She is the author of multiple books for both the lay public and the professional.
The Elizabeth Noble award is the Section on Women’s Health’s highest honor, and is given to a member in good standing of the Section on Women’s Health of the APTA providing extraordinary and exemplary service to the field of physical therapy for women, or to the Section on Women’s Health of the American Physical Therapy Association. The award may be, but is not necessarily, presented on an annual basis. When awarded, the recipient is presented with the award at the Section’s Annual Business Meeting, at the APTA Combined Sections Meeting.
