This fall, the Presidential Obama Portraits will be on display at the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston (September 3 – October 30). Inspired by “The Obama Portraits Tour” and honoring Michelle Obama’s legacy of prioritizing the mental and physical well-being of all Americans—especially young people and people of color—this event discusses issues of wellness in Boston’s marginalized communities. Join this conversation about changing policies, practices, and attitudes to make the wellness industry more inclusive. 

The event program includes a panel discussion with city leaders who have made an impact in the wellness industry: 

  • Dr. Anouska Bhattacharyya, Vice President of Programs, YW Boston 
  • Ashley Mitchell, Founder of the Courage Campaign 
  • Lisa Simmons, Director of the Roxbury International Film Festival 
  • Heather White, Founder and CEO of TrillFit 

Amaka Ubaka, Emmy award-winning journalist and 7NEWS anchor, will moderate this panel.

“The City Talks: Equity in Wellness” is presented in partnership with the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, and is a free event open to the public.
