2017 Envision Gala

 

On behalf of the Digestive Health Foundation, thank you to everyone who supported our second annual Digestive Health Foundation Envision: Within Reach Gala fundraiser. On June 3, 2017, the DHF community came together to celebrate and raise funds for life-changing research and education at the Northwestern Medicine Digestive Health Center.  This year’s Gala raised more than $1.6 million. View photos from the evening in our online photo gallery.

This outpouring of generosity enables us to continue funding innovative research at the Northwestern Medicine Digestive Health Center. In the last twelve months, the Digestive Health Foundation has funded more than 20 research projects that are providing much needed solutions for patients through new and improved GI diagnostics, treatments, symptom management tools, and ultimate cures. Click HERE to learn more about Digestive Health Foundation funded research.

Thank you again for your support of the 2017 Envision: Within Reach Gala.

With sincere appreciation,

Janet and Dr. Michael Ruchim
