The annual Tidewell Foundation Signature Luncheon brought physician Sudip Bose to the Ritz-Carlton Sarasota to speak on veterans health on March. 3.
The event — which benefits Tidewell Hospice's programs providing care to patients and families as well as other Empath Health nonprofit affiliates — brought hundreds to the Ritz-Carlton ballroom to hear from Dr. Bose. The physician and former Army Major was the surgeon who treated Saddam Hussein following his capture.
Bose spoke to the importance of health care and treatment for veterans. The luncheon also recognized the Tidewell Honors Veterans program, which provides specialized care for veterans and families.
Following an opening performance of the national anthem from Empath Health music therapist Jasmine Ridge, guests heard from Empath Health president Jonathan Fleece and Tidewell Foundation president Delesa Morris as lunch was served.
