The American Diabetes Association is hosting its 2016 Unmasking Diabetes Gala & Awards to recognize extraordinary individuals who have made significant contributions in the fight against diabetes in their personal and professional communities. This masquerade-themed event will serve to unmask the myths associated with diabetes in our region and in the world.

The National Constitution Center on Independence Mall will serve as the perfect backdrop for this very special evening, which will begin with a VIP reception on the terrace overlooking the Mall and feature a silent auction, followed by a dazzling awards ceremony, dinner and keynote address from a leader in the field of diabetes.

The guest list will include leading researchers and health care providers, business leaders, community leaders and four distinguished award recipients and their guests – all joined in the fight against the diabetes epidemic.

The purpose of the event is to highlight the achievements of our award recipients in the areas of medicine, research, education and philanthropy.

The order of events is as follows:

6:00 p.m. VIP Reception overlooking Independence Mall, with Silent Auction

7:00 p.m. Dinner and Awards Presentation

8:30 p.m. Coffee and dessert reception with live music
