About Women & Wellness

In 1996, the Women & Wellness Forum Series was established to educate women on their healthcare options in Richmond and raise funds to support women's cancer research at VCU Massey Cancer Center.

The centerpiece of the series is the Women & Wellness Signature Breakfast and Luncheon, which has grown to become a beloved and much anticipated annual tradition at The Jefferson Hotel. Thanks to a dedicated volunteer committee, the event has raised nearly $5 million for women's cancer research, inspired thousands of attendees and welcomed impressive keynote speakers, including Joan Lunden and Samantha Harris. 

The impact of funds raised has been widespread, providing critical funding to support cutting-edge research in women's cancers. Additional events throughout the year offer educational and inspirational programming. Stay tuned for more information about upcoming opportunities to attend a Women & Wellness Forum Series event and support women's cancer research at Massey.
