She co-founded the Susan G. Komen for the Cure Foundation in memory of her sister who lost her battle with breast cancer in 1982. Tonight, Nancy Goodman Brinker is speaking at Meredith College.
Brinker focuses on “The Power of One”—everyone’s ability to affect change in their communities, companies, countries, and the world. As a breast cancer survivor herself, she is also the UN Ambassador for Cancer Control, and former U.S. Chief of Protocol and US Ambassador to Hungary.
During her lecture, billed as the 2010 Meredith College Woman of Achievement, she will share how her personal and professional fulfillment lessons can help every individual lead a life of both success and significance.
Brinker’s lecture is part of the Blue Cross and Blue Shield of North Carolina Presidential Lecture Series at Meredith College. The series is designed to stimulate and enhance intellectual academic climate at Meredith and the broader community. Each year, the series has a different theme, and this year’s is “Catalysts for Change.”
The lecture is set for 7 p.m. in Meredith’s Jones Auditorium. The event is free and open to the public, but tickets are required. Call 760-8533 or e-mail email@example.com for information.
