The 2024 Women’s Health Luncheon
Keynote Speaker: Chelsea Clinton, DPhil, MPH
As vice chair of the Clinton Foundation, Chelsea Clinton works alongside the foundation’s leadership and partners to improve lives and inspire emerging leaders across the United States and around the world. This includes the foundation’s early child initiative Too Small to Fail, which supports families with the resources they need to promote early brain and language development; and the Clinton Global Initiative University, a global program that empowers student leaders to turn their ideas into action. A longtime public health advocate, Chelsea also serves as vice chair of the Clinton Health Access Initiative and uses her platform to increase awareness around issues such as vaccine hesitancy, childhood obesity, and health equity.
In addition to her foundation work, Chelsea teaches at Columbia University’s Mailman School of Public Health and has written several books for young readers, including the No. 1 New York Times bestseller She Persisted: 13 American Women Who Changed the World as well as She Persisted Around the World; She Persisted in Sports; She Persisted in Science; Start Now! You Can Make a Difference; Don’t Let Them Disappear; It’s Your World: Get Informed, Get Inspired & Get Going; and Welcome to the Big Kids Club. She is also the co-author of The Book of Gutsy Women and Grandma’s Gardens with Secretary Hillary Rodham Clinton and of Governing Global Health: Who Runs the World and Why? with Devi Sridhar. Chelsea’s podcast, “In Fact with Chelsea Clinton,” premiered in 2021, and she is also co-founder of HiddenLight Productions.
Chelsea holds a bachelor of arts from Stanford, a master of public health from Columbia’s Mailman School of Public Health, and both a master of philosophy and a doctorate in international relations from Oxford University. She lives with her husband Marc, and their children, Charlotte, Aidan, and Jasper in New York City.
About the Women’s Health Luncheon:
Every May, the Women’s Health Luncheon highlights the work being done by the Brigham’s Mary Horrigan Connors Center for Women’s Health and Gender Biology to protect and promote the health of women around the world. Specifically, the Connors Center focuses on advancing discoveries in sex- and gender-based biology and improving our understanding how diseases and drugs impact women and men differently. Each year, in addition to hosting a nationally recognized keynote speaker, the luncheon brings these discoveries to light with TEDMED-style presentations from our world-renowned Harvard-affiliated Brigham physicians.
