The American College for Advancement in Medicine (ACAM) awarded Standard Process Inc. with its highest honor, the Corporate Vision Award, during ACAM's Spring 2010 Education Summit held in San Diego, April 21-25, 2010.
The Corporate Vision Award is presented twice a year during ACAM's spring and fall conferences. It is awarded to a company that takes an active interest in integrative medicine and offers products or services that are integral to physicians who practice integrative medicine.
"To receive this honor from ACAM is truly a historical achievement for us," said Charles DuBois, president of Standard Process. "Like ACAM, we are dedicated to optimizing health and wellness. Together we are committed to a single vision: a time when all health care professionals are working in the best interest of the patient by combining conventional care with alternative solutions to obtain optimal results and health."
Standard Process is devoted to optimizing health care and wellness for patients by teaching health care professionals how to integrate nutritional whole food supplements into complementary and conventional health care practices. To spread the word, Standard Process partners with associations and organizations to raise awareness of nutrition and complementary practices, and is involved in public awareness campaigns, educational events, seminars, and workshops. In 2009 alone, Standard Process donated or committed more than $3 million for the growth and development of complementary practices.
