Since 2010, HJF has hosted an annual Heroes of Military Medicine Awards Dinner in Washington, D.C., welcoming top military leaders in the nation to honor those who have made significant contributions to the field of military medicine.
In 2022, HJF will host a new awards ceremony in San Antonio. The Heroes of Military Medicine Awards honor those who have distinguished themselves through excellence and selfless dedication while serving our nation’s wounded, ill, and injured service members, veterans, and civilians.
San Antonio is a major base of medical operations for the United States Military and nicknamed “Military City USA.” HJF has supported dozens of research and clinical trials for nearly 30 years. The Heroes of Military Medicine Awards Dinner in San Antonio will recognize exceptional military medical talent serving in and around the greater San Antonio area.
HJF is proud to expand its successful HMM Awards program to San Antonio. The inaugural “Heroes of Military Medicine Awards Dinner – San Antonio” will be held on Thursday, October 20, 2022, at the San Antonio Botanical Garden’s Betty Kelso Center.
