“Please join me, the gala-co-chairs, and the TMAF board by attending this virtual gala, which comes at a time when we need to remain strong and follow where the science leads us. The continued strength and resolve of our physician heroes is needed to see us to the very end of this pandemic,” Dr. Bailey added.
