McGee Wealth Management (MWM) is partnering with Oregon Health and Science University (OHSU) to host “Women, Health and Happiness,” an evening of fine dining and presentations from OHSU’s leading experts on women’s health. The event will be held on April 17 from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at Aquariva Portland at the River’s Edge Hotel and Spa, located at 0470 SW Hamilton Ct., Portland, OR 97239.

McGee Wealth Management embraces a philosophy that encourages people to enrich their lives by leading a positive, healthy lifestyle. To share the firm’s mentality with the community, MWM President and CCO and Raymond James Co-Branch Manager D. Linette Dobbins contributes annually to OHSU’s Circle of Giving, a prestigious group of women who support the OHSU Center for Women’s Health. She donates annually and participates in continuing education programs that aim to blend medicine and philanthropy.

“The Circle of Giving is an essential component of our philanthropic efforts at McGee Wealth Management,” commented Dobbins. “The contributions made by Circle of Giving donors provide funding to basic research and specialized programs at the hospital, and it’s incredible to know that those medical advancements will impact the lives of women all over the world.”
