Message From the Co-Presidents, Nancy Arenas and Mary Page

The George Washington University Hospital Women Board (GWUHWB) has a longstanding legacy as a professional women’s healthcare charitable organization. It has been my honor as the president of the GWUHWB to continue the legacy of charity, fellowship, and fundraising.

Being a part of the GWUHWB allows you an opportunity to network with other professional women in the National Capital Region. There are many fun and worthwhile activities to participate in this year, and every year, that support GW Hospital and our community. For example, our Annual Charity Golf Tournament funds many hospital programs while our Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) blanket program provides handmade isolate blankets and baby holders to assist in the NICU infant's development. In addition to events and programs, there are many opportunities to serve on committees. Our Lights of Love committee and annual gift giving committee are holiday season committees that are both fun and inspiring. We also offer a finance committee, gift shop committee, global outreach community interest committee and a role as historian.

We invite you to join the GWUHWB and become a part of a legacy of women that is more than a century long.
