We are excited to announce this year's speaker Actress and Philanthropist Jane Seymour. Emmy® and Golden Globe® winner, recipient of the Officer of the British Empire (OBE) in 2000, Jane Seymour has proven her talents in all media, the Broadway stage, motion pictures and television. 

Seymour’s past films include the James Bond movie Live and Let Die, Somewhere in Time, and Wedding Crashers. Her television credits include the Emmy® Award winning performance in Onassis: The Richest Man in the World as Maria Callas, East of Eden for which she was awarded a Golden Globe®, the mini-series War and Remembrance and her Golden Globe® winning role as “Dr. Quinn” on Dr. Quinn Medicine Woman which ran for six seasons. 


SmartWomen Luncheon & Expo is an annual fundraiser for St. Joseph's/Candler's Mary Telfair Women's Hospital, which includes the Mammography Fund at Telfair Pavilion.

The goal of the Mary Telfair Women's Hospital and the Mammography Fund is to ensure that all women have access to mammography, even if they have no insurance and cannot afford it. The SmartWomen Luncheon & Expo has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for the Telfair Mammography Fund to meet this goal since its inception over a decade ago.

The 2017 event raised $170,000. We would like to thank everyone who attended and all our sponsors for their continued support. We hope to see all of you in September.
