About Health Care Heroes: Health Care Heroes is an annual celebration to bring together the Wilmington-area medical community and its supporters. The program has three goals: to give members of the health community a chance to connect in a fun relaxed atmosphere; to celebrate individuals who go well beyond expectations to provide excellent care for our community, and to award scholarships to up-and-coming members of the health care community. This year's awards event will be held on November 15 at the Country Club of Landfall.
