The 2016 NACDS Foundation Dinner, part of NACDS Week in New York, raised $1.94 million for evidence-based research, pharmacy education and philanthropic initiatives to improve patient outcomes and advance population health.
Dr. Judith Monroe, president and chief executive officer of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Foundation, was presented with the 2016 NACDS Foundation Excellence in Patient Care Award.
Monroe has served in her current role since last December. She joined the CDC Foundation from CDC, where she was a member of CDC director Tom Frieden’s senior leadership team. Before coming to the CDC, Monroe served as the state health commissioner for Indiana from 2005 to 2010.
Keynoting the NACDS Foundation Dinner, in its 18th year, was “Late Night” host and “Saturday Night Live” alumnus Seth Meyers.
