The Tidewell Foundation’s 14th Annual Signature Luncheon will honor Veterans and feature nationally recognized speaker, retired Army Major, and Bronze Star recipient Dr. Sudip Bose. The annual fundraiser is scheduled for Friday, March 3, 2023, at The Ritz-Carlton, Sarasota.
As an Army battalion surgeon in the Iraq War, Dr. Bose was selected to treat Saddam Hussein after his capture and was awarded a Bronze Star for completing one of the longest combat tours by any physician since World War II. He’s been recognized as a “CNN Hero” and was named one of the “Leading Physicians of the World” by the International Association of Healthcare Professionals. An experienced and trusted health correspondent and a vocal advocate for improved health care for Americans, Dr. Bose appears frequently on network news programs including CNN, MSNBC, CBS, and Fox and on hit shows such as “Untold Stories of the ER.”
With lessons from the front lines of emergency rooms in the pandemic and combat zones in Iraq, Dr. Bose has an inspiring and motivational message for leaders in times of crisis and anyone struggling to return to “normal.”
The 14th Annual Signature Luncheon is the Tidewell Foundation’s signature fundraising event to help fund charitable care, grief support services, specialized Veterans care, music therapy, telehealth and other programs that Tidewell Hospice and other Empath Health not-for-profit entities provide to people across Charlotte, DeSoto, Manatee and Sarasota counties. This year, the program will support Tidewell Honors Veterans program and other hospice programs.
