The CHEST Foundation announced today it will hold its annual "Making a Difference" awards dinner this year on October 23 in Seattle, WA. The dinner will recognize 22 physicians from around the world who will be awarded the Governors Community Service Award for their community-based health and wellness programs.

The awards dinner will be hosted by entertainer and musician Paul Shaffer of The Late Show with David Letterman.

"We are pleased to have the help of Paul Shaffer on an evening where we celebrate our long commitment to improving the lives of people throughout the world through education and advocacy."

On behalf of The CHEST Foundation, Shaffer will present $140,000 in grant money to the 22 award recipients at the dinner. The money will be used to strengthen the recipients' community health projects in 11 countries. This year, the grants will be used to bring primary medical services to elderly and disabled patients, children, and war victims in North and East Sri Lanka; lung function testing to coal miners and smokers in Silesia, Poland; tuberculosis consultation services in Denver, Colorado; organ donation education to African-Americans in Detroit, Michigan; and other needed services to people and communities around the globe.
