The 17th Annual Jefferson Gala celebrates Jefferson’s recent advancements in healthcare, education, and discovery.
1. The 17th Annual Jefferson Gala took place on Thursday, December 5, 2019 at the Pennsylvania Convention Center. This year’s gala honored Robert H. Rosenwasser, MD, MBA, FACS, FAHA with the Achievement Award in Medicine, and Andréa W. and Kenneth C. Frazier with the Award of Merit. The Jefferson Gala is a chance to celebrate Jefferson’s recent advancements in healthcare, education, and discovery. At this annual gathering, Jefferson also recognizes their outstanding friends—successful thought leaders, change agents, and philanthropists who are transforming the medical world. Reimagine: The Campaign for Jefferson is the beneficiary this year with funds going toward stroke prevention, underserved Philadelphia neighborhoods as well as special initiatives at the Vickie and Jack Farber Institute for Neuroscience. The Jefferson Gala has raised over $15 million over the past 16 years. The event began with a cocktail reception followed by dinner and a program.
