Inaugural Sherman Prize Event

November 10, 2016
Museum of Arts and Design, New York

Opening Remarks by Bruce Sherman

“Tonight is the culmination of an exciting year during which our family established the Sherman Prize for Excellence in Crohn’s and colitis, an award to honor both experienced professionals and emerging leaders who are undertaking exceptional and pioneering work on IBD and to recognize these efforts through the award and a financial prize.”

Remarks by Dr. David Rubin

“There is a lot more work that we have to do and, therefore, identifying those who have devoted their careers to these conditions and to helping those who suffer from these diseases and honoring them and supporting them is critically important. And that’s why the Sherman Prize is so meaningful to all of us. This is a tremendous gift to the IBD community.”
