Thank you for making the third annual Digestive Health Foundation Gala a tremendous success!

DHF’s annual gala continues to be a powerful way to bring our community together, generating significant resources to achieve our mission. With your generous support, we are proud to announce that the 2018 gala raised $2.45 million! These funds will be used to accelerate medical discoveries aimed at transforming digestive disease into digestive health for patients and families at Northwestern Medicine Digestive Health Center and worldwide.

Enjoy browsing photos captured from the event that honored Dr. Steven J. Stryker and his wife Andréa J. Schwartz in our online photo gallery.

We are deeply grateful to everyone who contributed their time, treasure and talent to support our work.

Sincerely,
