A member of the Columbia-Presbyterian Hospital Health Sciences Advisory Council, Dr. Lindsay Rosenwald has assisted in bestowing the Council’s annual Award for Distinguished Service to individuals who have significantly contributed to the health and well-being of society. A physician and investor, Dr. Lindsay Rosenwald has spent much of his career as the founder and backer of biotechnology companies that have developed medicines that have greatly improved the health of many patients.

Numerous well-known individuals have received the Advisory Council’s Award for Distinguished Service, including Christopher Reeve, Mike Wallace, Anna Wintour, and Sanjay Gupta. In 2012, the award was given to Charlie Rose, a television personality and anchor.
