Four Utahns to be Honored for their Work to Improve Health of Community at 2018 Legacy of Life Awards Gala

Presented by the Intermountain Research and Medical Foundation, the annual event raises funds to advance cardiovascular and pulmonary health through clinical research that ultimately leads to clinical application.

Retired cardiothoracic surgeon Donald B. Doty, MD, and his wife, Cheryl J. Doty, will be honored with the 2018 Legacy of Life Award, which recognizes eminent leaders with ties to Utah for their contributions to the well-being of mankind. 

President Russell M. Nelson of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, who previously served as Dr. Doty’s surgical partner at LDS Hospital, will attend the event, along with many distinguished government, business, civic, education, and fellow religious leaders.

C. Gregory Elliott, MD, chair of the department of medicine at Intermountain Medical Center, will be honored with the 2018 Scientific Achievement Award, which recognizes a physician who advances medical research and clinical care, improving the health of the community.

Businessman Robert J. Corcoran will receive the 2018 Gold Caduceus Award for his service as an outstanding volunteer who contributes time, resources, and expertise in making an impact on the health of the community.
