2019 Heroes in Medicine Awards Luncheon Set for May 17 at Kravis Center

The 16th Annual Heroes in Medicine Awards presented by the Palm Beach County Medical Society and Services (PBCMSS) honors the heroes who place the needs of others above themselves and have made significant, positive impacts on the people they serve in the greater health care community.

According to the event’s chair John Dalton and co-chairpersons Greg Coates and Judy Dunn, nearly 30 honorees in several categories will be honored May 17, 2019, at the 16th annual luncheon at which time the Hero of the Year will be announced. James Galvin, M.D., was named as Hero of the Year for 2018.
The mistress of ceremonies Liz Quirantes, CBS 12 News, will welcome guests to the Kravis Center’s Cohen Pavilion in West Palm Beach. The reception and silent auction begin at 11 a.m., followed by the luncheon and awards ceremony at 12 noon. Tickets are $125.00 per person, and sponsorships also are available for this highly regarded event. Heroes in Medicine recognizes the Founding and Presenting Sponsor–Rendina Healthcare Real Estate and Benefactor Sponsor–Tenet: Palm Beach County.
These prestigious awards honor people and organizations throughout Palm Beach County who use skills and resources to provide outstanding services. Net proceeds from the awards luncheon support the services of the Medical Society and Project Access, a physician-led network of physicians and other health care providers who offer care at no cost to local uninsured children and adults in need and other vital services of the PBCMSS. Since 2005 when Project Access began, hundreds of physicians and other health care providers have provided more than $13.5 million of free care, with over $1 million provided last year. For every $100 contributed to Project Access, $800 in free care is provided — care which has offered support, hope and even saved lives.
