The NACDS Foundation is deeply grateful to all who participated in the 20th Annual NACDS Foundation Dinner on Wednesday, November 28, 2018 in New York City. Attendees to the Dinner contributed more than $1.8 million to support the Foundation’s evidence-based research, educational programs and philanthropic initiatives.
At this year’s event, the Foundation bestowed its highest honor to a professional whose work has made a meaningful difference to our nation’s health and well-being. The 2018 Excellence in Patient Care Award was presented to Dr. Michael Fraser, Chief Executive Officer of The Association of State and Territorial Health Officials – an advocate, voice and exemplary leader for state and territorial public health. The evening program also included a spark of energy and humor from comedian Colin Jost, cast member and head writer for NBC’s Saturday Night Live.
The Foundation Dinner provides a special evening of friendship and collaboration to support the Foundation’s mission to advance patient and population health. We look forward to our 21st annual event in 2019 and hope to see you there!
