2018 Apollo Awards
November 7, 2018 @ 6:30 pm - 10:00 pm$100
This award is given annually to members of (or family members of) the medical community who have made significant contributions to improving the quality of life in our region. It is designed to encourage and acknowledge participation by the medical community in initiatives that go beyond the health care professional’s normal scope of work.
The dinner takes place at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, November 7 at the Holiday Inn Ballroom in downtown Johnstown.
Ticket and sponsorship opportunities are available for purchase online.
In addition to honoring the awardees, the annual Apollo Award ceremony will feature the recipients of the 2018 Apollo Scholarship.
This scholarship is awarded each year through the Foundation’s Apollo Award Fund, which has historically been supported by the 1889 Foundation, Conemaugh Health System, Lee Initiatives, Somerset Hospital, and Chan Soon-Shiong Medical Center at Windber. It is given to students who are in their third or fourth year of medical school and have expressed an interest in returning to this region to practice medicine upon graduation.
Established in 2008, the Apollo Award fund has distributed over $321,500 in scholarships.
