Heritage Day is a celebration of the achievements and promise of the sciences and technologies that shape material culture. Each year CHF hosts this celebration at its Philadelphia headquarters, located just two blocks from the Liberty Bell and Independence Hall in Independence National Historical Park.
The cornerstone of Heritage Day is the presentation of the Othmer Gold Medal for multifaceted contributions to chemistry. CHF also presents the Richard J. Bolte, Sr., Award for Supporting Industries on Heritage Day, along with an award given in partnership with the American Institute of Chemists.
This year’s Heritage Day events will take place on May 15, 2014. Visit the event page for details and registration information.
