UHF's Gala is one of New York's premier health care events, an annual event for decades that helps support our work to build a more effective health care system in New York, and honors exceptional leaders for their contributions to health and health care. Three awards are presented annually: the Health Care Leadership Award, the Distinguished Community Service Award, and a Special Tribute. Honorees are carefully selected to recognize extraordinary leadership benefiting New York and New Yorkers.
