Help NFID honor public health heroes at the 2020 Awards Gala scheduled for December 14, 2020

As we look towards the 2020 NFID Awards Gala, we are closely monitoring the environment due to the COVID-19 pandemic. We are navigating the evolving guidelines impacting travel, stay-at-home orders, and large in-person gatherings. Safety is our top priority and will continue to be our ultimate guide for event planning efforts.

What we can promise is that we will find a way to appropriately honor the 2020 awardees. Thank you for your patience—we will continue to provide planning updates over the coming months.

The National Foundation for Infectious Diseases (NFID) presents annual awards to outstanding individuals who have made significant and lasting contributions to public health through scientific achievement, philanthropy, and/or policy work.

The NFID Annual Awards Gala (often called the Oscars of Infectious Diseases) celebrates the work of inspirational public health heroes who have helped protect the lives of millions. Join NFID to connect with friends and colleagues for a memorable and elegant evening.

As a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization, NFID relies on donations from individuals and organizations to support our work in educating healthcare professionals and the public on the burden, causes, prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of infectious diseases across the lifespan. Donate today to honor the 2020 awardees and ensure we are preparing the next generation of infectious disease leaders.
