The Arnold P. Gold Foundation’s 2024 Annual Gala

June 10 @ 6:00 PM - 9:00 PM

The Arnold P. Gold Foundation’s 2024 Annual Gala will be held on June 10th at Guastavino’s in New York City. The Gold Foundation, the leading nonprofit dedicated to humanism in healthcare for all, will be presenting the National Humanism in Medicine Medal to three extraordinary individuals: internationally recognized nurse scientist, sociologist, and transformational leader for global health and women’s health, Dr. Afaf Ibrahim Meleis; visionary pediatrician, activist, and author Dr. Mona Hanna-Attisha; and innovative healthcare executive and gun violence prevention advocate Michael J. Dowling.

Each honoree has made an incredible impact on humanism in their healthcare institution, and each has illuminated critical factors of health that exist outside of the hospital. Studies have shown that 80% of what determines health are community and social factors, such as clean water, nutritious food, air quality, stress levels, gun violence, and access to education and safe housing.

These leaders have used their influence to advocate powerfully for better health by raising their voices when other leaders looked away. Together, they represent the 2024 theme of the Gold Gala: “Creating Healthy Communities through Humanism.”

“Each of these distinguished leaders has made an incredible impact on humanistic care,” said Gold Foundation Board Chairman Richard C. Sheerr. “Each of them is inspiring. They have inspired me, and I hope they will inspire you. We are thrilled to be honoring them, and we hope to see many of you at our celebration in June.”

The Gold Gala will be hosted by the amazing Gold Trustee Dr. Kimberly Manning, a national voice of humanism who is a Professor at Emory School of Medicine and general internist at Grady Hospital in Atlanta. Co-Founder Dr. Sandra Gold will be in attendance, along with a variety of healthcare executives, deans, clinicians, patients, family members, and advocates who are passionate about humanistic care.

All supporters of humanism in healthcare are invited to join this special celebration and be a part of the Gold Foundation’s mission.
