The Claire Pomeroy Awards recognize and celebrate innovators in our region who have, through their ideas and hard work, already succeeded in transforming some important aspect of medicine and healthcare through technology. In addition to giving well-deserved recognition where it is due, the awards serve to enlighten everyone in our community, or elsewhere studying our community, about how these successes have occurred in the past, and to inspire new generations of innovators in our region to push forward with their ideas and entrepreneurial spirit to continue to improve medicine and healthcare. The Awardees provide others with good role models for success. It’s one thing to work in isolation, and quite another to work within a “beehive” of activity, where innovators draw energy and learn best practices from each other. At MedStart, we are building that beehive of activity to drive economic development in medical technology. The Clare Pomeroy Awards form a keystone for our entire MedStart Program.
We are now accepting nominations for the 2012 award. The submission deadline is Friday, April 6th. Winners will be notified by April 27, and awards will be publicly announced at the SARTA Sacramento Med Tech Showcase on June 5, 2012.
