While we are planning for a virtual and in-person Gala on September 30, we are following local COVID-19 guidelines to ensure the health and safety of our guests, volunteers, and staff, and will update guests about any changes to the event. Ignite Glass Studios includes a gorgeous outdoor space, and if you can’t make it in person, join us virtually to celebrate our Awards Winners!

Health & Medicine invites friends old and new to join us at our 40th Anniversary Health & Medicine Awards Gala, where we will honor the public health champions in our community who transform and improve the lives and well-being of all, both every day and in times of crisis.

Join us at Ignite Glass Studios and online to celebrate 40 years of working together to advance health equity and connect with local health justice advocates supporting our community throughout the pandemic and beyond.

We will enjoy live entertainment from Chicago musician Thaddeus Tukes, food and refreshments from The Fat Shallot, and an awards ceremony recognizing recipients of the Under 40 Award, Over 40 Years of Service Award, and Group Award.

For those who can’t make it in person—join us online for the Awards Ceremony!
