Halo Awards 2019 Heroes of Medicine

2nd Annual Halo Awards Celebrating Heroes of Medicine

The Halo Awards is a first-of-its-kind Grammy-style event celebrating scientists for their tireless pursuit of cures and treatments that help people live better lives. This is not your typical award show.


At the Halo Awards, the scientist is celebrity.

A wonderful event. The introductions and getting a colorful background on the award winners made me feel like I knew the scientists as people as well as heroes.  The award recipients, the people who introduced them, the emcee, and musical acts were phenomenal.
