Join us on May 11, 2017 at the Capital Center in downtown Albany as we honor Capital Care Medical Group with the Contributions to Healthcare Award and former Albany Mayor Gerald Jennings with the Edwin Sperber Legacy Award.  

These awards are presented each year at our annual Gift of Life Celebration, an event that celebrates the work of the Foundation and pays tribute to those in our community that make a difference.  Capital Care is being honored for its outstanding work in patient care and management of risk factors that cause chronic kidney disease, including diabetes and high blood pressure.  Jennings is set to receive the Edwin Sperber Legacy Award, considered the Foundation’s highest honor.  This award is presented each year to an organization or individual that has made significant contributions to the quality of life in our region.

A Clinician of the Year Award will also be presented that evening.  Meant to be a kidney community nomination, this brand new award will recognize a healthcare professional that contributes greatly to direct patient care.  Nominations are still being accepted for this recognition until April 15.  The nomination form can be found here.

A special thank you to our event sponsors:  Martin Harding &  Mazzotti; Fresenius Medical Care, MVP Health Care, and Dialysis Clinics, Inc.  Sponsorship opportunities still remain!  Find all the details here!
