About Legacy of Leadership

The Legacy of Leadership (LOL) Awards Gala is an annual fund-raising event held to advance Howard University Hospital's vast array of outreach programs and services. Since its inception, LOL has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars to support community initiatives grounded in the excellent healthcare and medical services provided by HUH for more than 140 years.

LOL outreach efforts are designed to afford those with significant needs a fair chance to receive the best possible healthcare. Through city-wide health fairs and events, HUH has been able to provide invaluable services including screenings, nutritional and drug counseling, and education in HIV/AIDS, sickle cell anemia, heart disease, hypertension and cancer.

In addition to being a stellar fund-raising affair, LOL is also an event during which outstanding healthcare professionals are recognized for their demonstrated commitment to the healthcare industry. These individuals are recognized experts on health and scientific research and have displayed a long-term commitment to the advocacy of critical minority and general health issues. They exemplify HUH's ideals of "excellence in service and leadership." Be a part of the legacy.
