Jefferson Gala
December 5, 2019

17th Annual Jefferson Gala

One of the highlights of our year, the Jefferson Gala is a chance to celebrate Jefferson’s recent advancements in healthcare, education, and discovery. At this annual gathering, we also recognize our outstanding friends—successful thought leaders, change agents, and philanthropists who are transforming the medical world—with the Award of Merit and the Achievement Award in Medicine.

2019 Honorees

Please join us on Thursday, December 5, 2019 as we honor 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.


About the Gala

Each year, the extended Jefferson family gathers together to look back on the year’s shared success and ahead to our new dreams. This tradition began in 2003 and we will be embarking on our 17th Annual Jefferson Gala this year.
