Highlights From NYeC’s Virtual 2020 Gala & Awards

On December 1st, NYeC hosted its 9th annual — and first virtual — Gala & Awards. We were thrilled to recognize this year’s honorees, NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital Executive Vice President & Chief Operating Officer Dr. Laura Forese, and Montefiore Health System President & Chief Executive Officer Dr. Philip Ozuah for their groundbreaking leadership and vision — particularly in this difficult year. We made a special tribute to all of the healthcare heroes who continue to make incalculable sacrifices to keep our communities healthy and safe this year.

To do our part in keeping our esteemed guests safe, attendees sat together at “virtual tables” to socialize throughout the event. We enjoyed an evening of camaraderie while still paying tribute to our distin-guished honorees and New York’s frontline healthcare workers. We thank the gracious sponsors and attendees for their support of this year’s event and hope to see everyone in person for the 2021 Gala & Awards.
