Adirondack Health Foundation Gala ~ 2014


What an amazing evening!

Nearly 300 well-wishers turned out to honor Dr. Woods McCahill and show their support for Adirondack Health.  A long-time physician at the Lake Placid Health Center, Dr. McCahill was honored with the Dr. Edward L. Trudeau award. The Trudeau Award is a service and leadership award given to recognize and honor an individual that demonstrates qualities of courage, compassion and generosity in their work on behalf of Adirondack Health.  Past recipients of the award have included Harry A. Jacobs Jr., a member of the Adirondack Health Foundation Board of Trustees, and State Sen. Betty Little. 

Adirondack Health is grateful for the service and leadership of Dr. McCahill, and thankful for the many generous sponsors and individuals who showed their support for the programs & services of Adirondack Health by helping raise more than $125,000 over the course of the evening.
