Save the date – Woodward/Bernstein signed as speakers for DFWHC’s Oct. 8 luncheon


Save the date! The Pulitzer Prize-winning reporters Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein have been signed to serve as the keynote speakers during the DFW Hospital Council’s (DFWHC) 71st Annual Awards Luncheon on Oct. 8, 2019 at the Irving Convention Center (new location).

Woodward and Bernstein are perhaps best known for their work as reporters on The Washington Post when they broke the Watergate scandal in 1972. They followed their reporting with the bestselling book “All the President’s Men” in 1974. The book was the basis of the Academy Award-winning film “All the President’s Men,” released in 1976.

Today, Woodward continues to work at The Washington Post and has written 13 #1 national best-selling non-fiction books. Bernstein is an on-air contributor to CNN and a contributing editor of Vanity Fair magazine. He is the author of five bestselling books.

Woodward and Bernstein will discuss the 45th anniversary of Watergate and how the political climate of the era pertains to modern times.

A salute to North Texas hospital leaders, DFWHC’s Annual Awards Luncheon takes place every fall and honors individuals who have made an historic impact on healthcare. The Distinguished Health Service Award, the Young Healthcare Executive of the Year and the Kerney Laday, Sr. Trustee of the Year are presented during the event.

Award recipients will be announced this summer. For information, please contact Chris Wilson at
