The event also served a farewell and thank you to Dean Richard D. Krug-man, MD, who led the school for nearly 25 years, the longest tenure in the history of the School of Medicine. Krugman stepped down from the deanship on March 31.

“We have been blessed with strong, steady, consistent leadership for over two decades,” said Lilly Marks, vice president for health affairs for the University and executive vice chancellor of the Anschutz Medical Campus.

Several honors were announced at the Bow Tie Ball:  

Marks announced that the Trivisible Room on the Anschutz Medical Campus has been renamed the Richard D. Krugman Conference Hall.

Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper issued a proclamation declaring Nov. 15, 2014, as Richard D. Krugman, MD, Day. 

Krugman’s wife, Mary, and their sons Scott, Todd, Joshua and Jordan unveiled a specially commissioned portrait of Krugman that will hang in perpetuity at the School of Medicine.   

The Bow Tie Ball’s chair was community leader Jamie Angelich. The School is grateful to the community and campus supporters who contributed their time and energy to make the event a success.
