About Women & Wellness:
The Women & Wellness Forum Series was established to educate women on their healthcare options in Richmond and raise funds for VCU Massey Cancer Center. The event grew to become a beloved and much anticipated annual tradition at the Jefferson Hotel, as well as a year-long series of educational and inspirational programming. The impact of funds raised has been widespread, providing critical funding to support cutting-edge research in women's cancers.
