This year's keynote speaker is Dr. Jackie Walters, physician, television personality and two-time breast cancer survivor. 

About Jackie Walters

As a prominent Atlanta obstetrician and gynecologist, Dr. Jackie has gained notoriety as a national expert on women's health, a strategic philanthropist and a rising television star. Appearing on Bravo's "Married to Medicine," Dr. Jackie used this national platform to bring awareness to breast cancer as a two-time survivor. In 2013, Dr. Jackie established the nonprofit 50 Shades of Pink to "treat the inner and outer beauty of breast cancer patients and survivors."
