The evening began at 6:30PM with the awards presentation followed by a cocktail buffet.  The event was by invitation only. 

Several awards are given to those who work tirelessly in their respective field of medicine.

The Lifetime Achievement Award is awarded to physicians for their lifetime of dedication to research and practice in their respective fields.  This year, the award was presented to Leonard Apt, M.D., Professor of Ophthalmology Emeritus (Active), Director Emeritus and Founder of the Division of Pediatric Ophthalmology and Strabismus - David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA, Jules Stein Eye Institute  and to Basil I.

Lauder Breast Center - Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center.

The National Health Leadership Award is awarded to a non-physician whose tireless work with an organization has heightened the awareness for the need of support and research for that specific cause.  Alexandra Reeve Givens and Matthew Reeve, Trustees of the Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation, received this year’s National Health Leadership Award.
