VP&S Crown Awards

2020 VP&S Crown Awards Gala

November 20, 2020

This year’s Crown Awards event celebrated the front line heroes of Columbia - the physicians, researchers, staff, students, and trainees - who responded courageously to the COVID-19 pandemic. In Pathology and Cell Biology, our own Dr. Susan Whittier and Dr. Eldad Hod, who were recognized at this event, shared their experiences during these unprecedented times. Their interview portion starts at 25:25 of the CROWN Awards Virtual Benefit.

The event also paid tribute to Dr. Lee Goldman for his 14-year tenure as Dean of VP&S and Chief Executive of CUIMC. Dr. Jennifer Ashton, VP&S alumna, ABC News Chief Health and Medical Correspondent was the event emcee. A special highlight of the evening was the musical performance by two-time Tony award winner, Brian Stokes Mitchell.
