Thank you to alumnae and friends who participated in our interactive Jewel Plummer Cobb Sisters Conference, which was held virtually on Saturday, October 24. Participants tuned in online to explore their spiritual core, ways to boost mental health and pursue peace of mind, and to gain empowerment through wellness at the conference hosted by the AADC Black Alumnae Network. The program also featured interactive activities, exercises and self-care strategies from experts Dr. Carol Penn and a testimony of growth and strength from Rev. Dr. Stefanie R. Minatee. A special message about Dean Jewel Plummer Cobb’s legacy was shared by her son Dr. Roy Jonathan Cobb and daughter-in-law, actress Suzzanne Douglas. First Lady of New Jersey, Tammy Snyder Murphy, shared remarks in a special, pre-recorded video about her policy initiatives focused on infant and maternal health, climate change education and fostering women-owned businesses.
