About this Event

Valerie Jarrett was the longest serving senior advisor to President Barack Obama. She currently serves as chairman of the board of When We All Vote in addition to serving on the boards of Lyft, 2U, the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, and more. In this talk, she’ll talk about the importance of civic engagement and what voter turnout means for public health. Join us!

The Brem Foundation's work saves lives and focuses on detecting breast cancer early - when it’s most treatable and survival rates are highest.

In March, the COVID-19 pandemic brought breast cancer screening to a halt. When restrictions are lifted, there will be a crush of women in urgent need of screening and diagnostic tests. Many of these women will have lost their jobs and health coverage. Breast centers will be overwhelmed by the backlog. There will be higher costs, later stage diagnoses, and less ability to afford care.

All of the funds raised from this series will support the Brem COVID-19 Emergency Initiative, helping the most vulnerable women get crucial breast diagnostic and screening tests.

We need your support now more than ever. Every dollar matters to raise $200,000 for women in need. Thank you.
