A trifecta with Bastyr University connections was among the big winners earlier this week, as the Natural Products Association (NPA) announced its 19th Annual NPA Awards on Tuesday.
The NPA Awards highlight individuals and businesses that have made important contributions to the success of the natural products industry. This year that list includes Bastyr University founding President Emeritus Joseph E. Pizzorno, Jr., ND, and Bastyr Integrative Oncology Research Clinic (BIORC) Medical Director Leanna Standish, PhD, ND, who each won Clinician Awards. Bastyr alumnus Michael T. Murray, ND, was given the President’s Award.
According to the NPA, Clinician Awards are presented to licensed health care practitioners whose work exemplifies the best standards and dedication to responsible holistic, non-invasive and integrative, complementary and alternative medicine modalities.
The President’s Award recognizes an individual who has made long-time contributions to the natural products industry, or has made a one-time, uniquely significant impact on the industry.
Awardees will be honored during Natural Products Association MarketPlace 2012, NPA’s annual trade show and convention, June 14 to 16 in Las Vegas.
