CDU Spring Gala 2014
About the Spring Gala
The Charles R. Drew University of Medicine and Science (CDU) Legacy Leaders Spring Gala raises awareness of individuals – “legends” – whose life and work embodies CDU’s legacy of service through education, patient and care and research. The event also raises awareness of the University’s phenomenal academic and pipeline programs that educate students and train future health providers that are as diverse as California’s population.
This year the CDU Legacy Leaders Spring Gala will honor Dr. Gus Gill. Dr. Gus Gill is a Board Certified Otolaryngologist – Head and Neck Surgeon and was the Chairman of the Department of Otolaryngology at CDU from 1978 until November 2006. Dr. Gill was past President of the Faculty Council at CDU and former President of the University’s Academic Senate and Director of the former International Health Institute. Dr. Gill is a true CDU Champion worthy of recognition.
The signature event promises to be a one-of-a kind evening where gospel music will be performed. We anticipate over 300 CDU friends and alumni will join us at the event to recognize a legend and raise funds to support CDU students, as well as, CDU academic and pipeline programs.
