The Virtual Annual Kenneth B. Schwartz Compassionate Healthcare Dinner

Honoring Our Nation of Caregivers

This is the premier healthcare event in the Northeast. Dinner guests include 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.

We had hoped to celebrate in-person this year. However, this year we will convene virtually to honor a nation of compassionate caregivers and raise money for programs to support their mental and emotional well-being.


Keynote Speaker:

Ashish Jha, MD, MPH
Dean of the Brown University School of Public Health
Professor of Health Services, Policy & Practice, Brown University School of Public Health
