Fashion 4 Development (F4D) in partnership with Human Kind Institute hosted the Third Annual Sustainable Goals Banquet on Monday, September 18th during the 78th Session of the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA). The evening’s theme was ‘Healthier People, Healthier Planet.’

The night’s final award served as a tribute to the late Franca Sozzani, Editor in Chief of Italian Vogue, where both Sozanni’s son film director/photographer Francesco Carrozzini, and Dr. Robert Green were honored for their work with The Franca Fund.

Dr. Green noted, “In my research at Harvard Medical School, we’ve determined that 15% of the people in this room are carrying a dangerous mutation in your DNA.” He continued, “Help communicate away from the fear of genetic testing and toward the opportunity for genetic testing for yourself, your children, and the world because this is going to change medicine as you know it.”
