2023 Spring Luncheon Spotlights Women

A robust crowd of 250 supporters at the River Oaks Country Club greeted keynote speaker Annie Griffiths at the 2023 PARTNERS Spring Luncheon on April 25. Griffiths, one of National Geographic’s first women photographers, shared spectacular photos and told stories about amazing women she has met in some of the least developed areas of the world. The event raised more than $214,000 for student scholarships and faculty research at Cizik School of Nursing. Read more about the luncheon, and view the photo album.
