Mark is the lead nurse for cardiac and radiology nursing but stepped up to get multiple COVID-19 research trials up and running in our trust whilst also assisting clinically when needed and absolutely always being a kind, strong and dependable leader in these difficult and challenging times. I’m very grateful to have such a nursing leader in my professional life.

Hi, Jane is the most thoughtful, sweet, happy, smart, committed person that I know. She puts her heart and soul into everything she does. She is the 1st person to help someone without any judgement or thought about herself. She constantly asks if people need something. She has worked for research as a CRC for 12 years and has had many research participants ask to have her be their coordinator for their visits. She always does her best even though she has personal hardships. She deserves to be recognized. thank you, Tammy

Even with when battling Thyroid disease, Graves disease she still refuses to take any time off. She is obsessed in making sure every single study is perfectly managed. We honestly get praised by every single sponsor on the management and quality of work performed. She is hard working, knowledgeable and great with all our subjects and staff members. I truly believe she deserves this award. Thank you.

Annamarie started at our clinic three years ago as a young recruitment specialist. Her warm voice, her empathy, and her sweetness made all the patients she called fall in love with her. She took the time to talk with them and made that crucial first connection.

Later she moved into the position of clinical research coordinator. Again, I can’t say enough about her connection to our patients. In a manner that’s professional and kind, she connects with our patients. They love her and ask about her. Regularly, patients are raving to me about her.

I’m so grateful to have her on my team not only for the wonderful bedside manner but also for her extreme work ethic, attention to detail, and her ability to be efficient in a way that many coordinators struggle with. She goes the extra mile and she does it with a smile. She does all this at a full-time FTE level while still pursuing her education towards a nursing degree- something Florence Nightingale would appreciate.

She is our go-to eSource guru, our hilarious code-cracker for millennial
