NAM Bicentennial Gala 1821-2021

This event will follow all safety protocols and size restrictions in place at the time of the event.

Join us on October 2, 2021, and be transported back in time with our 1821 Opening Cocktail Reception, sponsored by KraftCPAs.  Browse through historical memorabilia and archives of physicians and medicine in Nashville, and enjoy period-appropriate cocktails (and contemporary ones).

Distinguished guests will then step into the modern, 2021 inspired gala celebrating the 200th Anniversary of the Nashville Academy of Medicine.  We hope you will join us in celebrating the momentous occasion of the founding of the first medical society in Tennessee and 200 years of physicians serving in Nashville!
