The goal of this conversation series is to help us think about ways to improve “the patient experience” at Hopkins by learning from experts in other fields and disciplines.
Please join us, in welcoming Lynda Carter, actor, singer/songwriter and producer on Thursday, January 28 at 5 p.m. via Zoom. A Q&A session will follow the lecture.
Lynda Carter is best known for winning our hearts as Wonder Woman. She is an accomplished singer who has performed to rave reviews before sell-out crowds around the world. In addition to her long acting career, Lynda has the distinction of producing and starring in five highly rated network television specials for CBS, several of which were Emmy Award nominated.
In 1973 she won the Miss World-USA title and shortly thereafter outdistanced hundreds of other actresses for the part of iconic “Wonder Woman,” a character she infused with such depth and humor that it has become one of the most indelible characters in television history. Her fame led her becoming the ‘face’ of Maybelline Cosmetics, and she remained Maybelline’s top model for over a decade.
Though Lynda continued to act in films and television, when she had children she left the road to raise a young family. She returned to live performing in 2006, appearing on the London stage with an acclaimed star turn in Chicago. In 2007 Lynda started touring again in venues across the country with her band of Nashville all stars. Lynda has brought her concerts to major venues across the country including the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C. and Jazz at Lincoln Center in New York City. Her first CD, “At Last” was released in 2010 and dropped at No. 6 on the Billboard charts. Her second CD, “Crazy Little Things” was released in 2011. Lynda released her most recent album, “Red, Rock N’ Blues” in 2018. Her music is available on iTunes, Spotify and Amazon. For her incredible career, Lynda was presented with her ‘Star’ on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 2018.
Lynda and her husband, Robert Altman reside in Washington, D.C. and have two children, James Altman, an attorney, and Jessica Carter Altman, also an attorney, but now concentrating on her own singing career, making guest appearances with her mother along with just releasing her solo debut EP No Rule.
Lynda has contributed many charities and has been an outstanding spokesperson for Woman's rights and equality. She will be sharing with us her knowledge about life in the public eye as well as how to rediscover and re-invent yourself in your career and life. We are excited to have Lynda spend time with us to share her amazing journey.
The lectures are open to all members of the Hopkins community and we look forward to seeing you there. In order to allow for an open exchange between the speaker and the audience we will not record or broadcast the lecture.
