Dinner Logo

This is the premier healthcare event in the Northeast. Dinner guests include 1,800 leaders from hospitals, health plans and health-related associations, as well as members of the biotech, pharmaceutical and medical device industries. There is also a growing corporate presence, with leaders from banking, real estate and law.

The dinner consistently attracts CEOs and senior leaders who come not only to support the Schwartz Center’s mission of promoting compassionate care, but also for the networking opportunities it provides, while helping the Schwartz Center raise funds for its programs.
