Last Friday, July 24, Juan Carlos Rodríguez Bernárdez, president of Galician Alzheimer Federation, attended an event in which the Galician Gold Medal was awarded this year to the Galician health professionals involved in the care of the COVID-19 patients.

The event took place at the Centro Gaiás Museum, located in Cidade da Cultura of Santiago, and was attended by different personalities from the world of politics, such as the president of the Xunta de Galicia Alberto Núñez Feijóo. He was in charge of delivering the award with María Ángeles Puga Salas and Laura Martínez, two of the first COVID-19 patients in Galicia.
