The Allegheny County Medical Society Foundation hosted its annual community awards and fundraising gala March 8 at the Omni William Penn Hotel. Roughly 300 guests enjoyed the festive affair, which directly benefited the ACMS Foundation Medical Student Scholarship and Community College of Allegheny County Health Care Career Scholarship funds.
Since 1960, the ACMS Foundation has provided more than $2.3 million to these and other worthwhile causes. The medical society also recognized Dr. Kevin O. Garrett, 2014 ACMS president, along with other newly installed officers. The 2013 ACMS award recipients were also honored at the gala.
