Friends of the National Library of Medicine 2022 Gala

The Friends regret that, out of an abundance of caution, we need to reschedule our 2022 Friends of the NLM Gala, which was to have taken place on Wednesday, August 31, 2022, at the Willard. We took this decision after conversations with some of our honorees, sponsors, longtime attendees, and supporters who expressed concern about travel during the ongoing pandemic for themselves, and those for whom they provide care. While we had hoped to gather in person for the first time since 2019; please bear with us as we plan a new date. Paramount in rescheduling the date is ensuring that our distinguished and prestigious honorees will be able to attend.  We want to make sure that our attendees and sponsors will have the opportunity to engage with our distinguished and prestigious honorees and the NLM leadership. 

If you have purchased tickets, we hope that you will keep them for our rescheduled date. We apologize for all inconveniences that our postponement causes you. We know many of you adjusted your schedules and travel plans to join us in DC. We are appreciative of your understanding and very grateful for your ongoing consideration and support.

If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me. I would be happy to speak with you.

We look forward to seeing you when we do gather to celebrate our honorees and will keep you posted!
