Renowned news correspondent, host and producer Barbara Walters will serve as the keynote speaker for the National Association of Chain Drug Stores (NACDS) Foundation Dinner, which will be held on December 3 in New York City.
In its 16th year, the NACDS Foundation Dinner and contributions from the foundation’s benefactors help support evidence-based research that advances patient care, pharmacy education, student scholarships and charitable organizations that improve patient outcomes.
“Throughout her career, Barbara Walters has given viewers new perspectives on the fascinating leaders and luminaries she has interviewed,” said NACDS Foundation president Kathleen Jaeger. “Her ability to bring a truly personal approach to the news helped her to emerge as one of the most highly-respected journalists in television history. We are deeply honored that Ms. Walters will serve as the keynote speaker for the NACDS Foundation Dinner this year.”
Walters’ television career spans more than five decades. She has interviewed every American President and First Lady since Richard Nixon. She appeared on NBC’s “Today Show” for 15 years and served as co-host and chief correspondent of ABC News’ “20/20” for 25 years, and today is creator, co-owner, executive producer and co-host of the network’s “The View.”
