Columbia Children's Gala

On May 6, 2024, more than 300 benefactors, faculty, and friends from the Columbia Children’s Health community joined together to celebrate the 10th Anniversary of the Columbia Children’s Gala at The American Museum of Natural History in New York City.

The event focused on pediatric precision medicine – how doctors harness a child’s unique mix of personal genetic, genomic, and clinical information to develop effective and targeted courses of treatment designed specifically for them. Guests enjoyed an outstanding musical performance by husband and wife duo, The War and Treaty, Grammy-nominated for Best New Artist and Best American Roots Song. The evening’s program was emceed by Writer and Media Medical Expert, Edith Bracho-Sanchez, MD.
