2022 Event Recap:

On Saturday, August 13, 2022, physicians, donors, and other constituents gathered to celebrate physicians, the practice of medicine in Middle Tennessee, and the great work of the Medical Foundation of Nashville. More than 100 guests enjoyed a delicious three-course dinner, an amazing band, and a fun silent auction, as well as a presentation from board chair Christopher Ott, MD featuring successes and updates on the work of the Medical Foundation of Nashville. The event was a great success, creating a celebratory environment for physicians to be together outside of a clinical setting and raising money to support the work of the Medical Foundation, thanks to event sponsors HCA Healthcare / TriStar Health, SVMIC, KraftCPAs and Tennessee Oncology, as well as event patrons, ticket purchasers, and donors.
