We are thrilled to announce our 2022 Concordance First Chance Gala and are excited to welcome you in person to the Ritz-Carlton St. Louis on Saturday, October 15th.  

Last year we recognized our inaugural First Chance Award honorees, BJC HealthCare and John W. Thompson, for their commitment to making their communities a more equitable place. We look forward to announcing the 2022 First Chance Award honorees later this summer – stay tuned!
