Women's Health Luncheon Reimagined

A Conversation with Mariel Hemingway on Mental Health and Resilience

Friday, May 7 | 12pm

For 2021 the Women’s Health Luncheon is pivoting to a virtual format. In addition to a TEDMED style talk from the Brigham’s  Nomi C. Levy-Carrick, MD, MPhil, you will hear from mental health advocate Mariel Hemingway. Mariel is an iconic, Academy Award-nominated actor from a celebrated family, prolific author, and public speaker focused on mind-body-spirit optimization and purposeful living.

The Women’s Health Luncheon is held annually on the Friday before Mother’s Day to raise philanthropic support for work done by the Mary Horrigan Connors Center for Women’s Health & Gender Biology across research, education, advocacy, and clinical care focus areas. As one of the largest women’s health fundraisers in Boston, the luncheon also raises awareness among Boston’s philanthropists, corporations, and influential community leaders.

Please join us for this special virtual event.
