Join us in recognizing the outstanding work of this year's health care honorees!
Salute! to Healthcare is GDAHC’s annual celebration of individuals and organizations who have transformed health and health care in our region. COVID-19 prevented us from hosting Salute! last year; so, this year we recognize two years of honorees. In addition to our Breakthrough, Eagle, and Sy Gottlieb Awards, we are proud to introduce a new award this year — The Guardian of Health Award to acknowledge those who have demonstrated servant leadership at its finest while guiding our communities during the COVID-19 pandemic. Please join us as we celebrate the 2021 honorees as well as the many members, partners, and individuals who have been a part of GDAHC throughout the years.
