10th Annual Jefferson Awards Gala
Jefferson hosted its sold-out 10th Annual Awards Gala Oct. 25 at the Hyatt at the Bellevue in Philadelphia. Every year, this event honors two members of the Jefferson community whose leadership has profoundly affected the field of medicine.
Honorees for 2012 were William Keane, MD, the Herbert Kean Professor and Chair of the Department of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery and medical director of Jefferson University Physicians; and Robert Nicoletti, a local business leader and philanthropist whose family has established two endowed professorships at Thomas Jefferson University.
The 2012 gala raised more than $725,000 to support two initiatives selected by the awardees. Gifts honoring Dr. Keane will benefit an education legacy fund supporting otolaryngology resident training programs, and gifts honoring Mr. Nicoletti will provide scholarship funding for Jefferson Medical College students in need of financial assistance.
The Jefferson community is grateful to all who helped to make this year’s gala a resounding success.
