THE WOODLANDS, TX – Dr. Jennifer Arnold encouraged guests to “THINK BIG” at the second annual “Women Empowering Women” luncheon which was held on Friday, May 1, at The Woodlands Country Club-Palmer Course. The event which sold out months in advance and raised more than $115,000 for Interfaith Community Clinic.
“We were so honored to have Dr. Arnold as our special guest for this event for the Interfaith Community Clinic. She was incredibly inspiring and is truly a remarkable woman. The guests were equally excited to hear her motivating words of strength and encouragement,” said Dr. Ann Snyder, President and CEO of the Interfaith community Clinic.
Standing at just 3 foot 2, Dr. Arnold has a rare type of dwarfism called Spondyloepiphyseal Dysplasia Type Strudwick, and has undergone more than 30 surgeries. She and her husband Bill, along with their children Will and Zoey are featured on TLC’s docu-drama, The Little Couple, which follows their personal and professional lives and is now in its 7th season. The show has proven to be an invaluable method to break down barriers and educate people around the country about people with disabilities.
More than 200 guests attended the luncheon, and were able to meet Dr. Arnold before and at the conclusion of the event.
