Long-time NCMC Foundation Board Member and community leader Masoud Shirazi was honored with the Legacy Award, presented annually to an outstanding individual or organization for their distinguished service and commitment to improving healthcare in our region.

Proceeds from the 2015 Gala are directed towards technology upgrades and expansion of the NCMC Cancer Institute, currently undergoing a $10 million renovation.
