Bush Sisters to Speak at Amarillo Luncheon

Bush Sisters

Former first daughters and fraternal twins Jenna Bush Hager and Barbara Bush Coyne will be the featured speakers when the Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center’s Laura W. Bush Institute for Women’s Health hosts the Sisters First Luncheon from Noon – 1:30 p.m. Nov. 15 at the Amarillo Civic Center Grand Plaza located at 401 S. Buchanan St.
 
Bush Hager is a co-host of NBC’s “Today Show with Hoda & Jenna,” and a NBC News correspondent. She is the author of the New York Times best-seller, “Ana’s Story: A Journey of Hope.” She also co-authored two children’s books, “Our Great Big Backyard” and “Read All About It!” with her mother, Laura W. Bush.
 
Bush Coyne is the co-founder and board chairman of Global Health Corps, a health-focused nonprofit organization that is providing opportunities for young professionals from diverse backgrounds to take the lead in fighting for global health equality. By doing so, the organization hopes toinspire the next generation of global health leaders and problem solvers who believe health is a human right.
 
The Bush sisters recently published, “Sisters First,” a new children’s book that will be released in November. In 2017, they teamed up to publish a joint memoir, “Sisters First: Stories from Our Wild and Wonderful Life.”
 
Angela Knapp Eggers, senior director for the Laura W. Bush Institute for Women’s Health, said the event will include personal stories and universal revelations from the Bush sisters that will celebrate sisterhood and all of its complicated, hilarious and life-defining moments. The event seeks to raise awareness of the institute’s mission and to provide funding for its research, education and outreach endeavors.
 
“The Laura Bush Institute for Women’s Health strives to bring compelling and impactful speakers to our community, keeping in mind that our health matters, and no matter what our life circumstances, a positive attitude is an important key to healing and dealing with everything,” Eggers said. “We are thrilled to host Jenna and Barbara and proud to be able to provide such an educational and fun day.”
 
The Laura W. Bush Institute for Women’s Health is dedicated to improving the lives of women and girls in Texas and across the nation by advancing multidisciplinary science in women’s health. Recognizing that differences matter, the institute promotes health, individually inspired, through scientific investigation, translation of science into practice and providing outreach that impacts the community for today and tomorrow.
