On November 1, 2016 the Gold Foundation held its annual Golden Thread Gala in New York City. We presented Humanism in Medicine Awards to
- Dr. Jordan J. Cohen for his commitment to academic medicine and his unmatched leadership and loyalty during his 10-year tenure as Chairman of our Board of Trustees, and to
- U.S. Surgeon General Dr. Vivek H. Murthy for promoting humanism as a path to connect and improve the lives of healthcare professionals and all citizens of the United States.
Dr. Murthy delivered a powerful speech during which he noted that “the world is locked in a struggle between love and fear” and asked us all to help tip the scale towards love. His 15 minute speech will inspire you to help too.
We are grateful to all who attended and supported the 2016 Golden Thread Gala, especially our event Co-Chairs:
- Laurel Epstein
- Jane Levin
- Daryl Rand
- Betsy Sheerr
- Tamar and Gary Tolchin
- Barry Waldorf
- Hanita Walia
- Lee Wolf
Thank you for all you do to help our Foundation “tip the scale towards love.”
