SAN ANTONIO – We’re proud to announce that BioBridge Global CEO Linda Myers has been named one of the winners of the 2015 Health Care Heroes awards, given each year by the San Antonio Business Journal.
Myers was one of the winners in the category of Outstanding Health Care Executive – Nonhospital-Based.
BioBridge Global (BBG) board members Mike Kreager and John Feik submitted letters in support of Myers’ nomination, as did Dr. Steve Davis and Ann Stevens. Davis is a co-founder of San Antonio-based biomedical firm StemBioSys Inc.; and Stevens is president of BioMed SA, a nonprofit organization that supports the biomedical industry in our city.
“I am honored to have received this award and the support of the board,” Myers said. “It is through the efforts of the entire organization and our employees working toward our mission to save and enhance lives that we are at the forefront of the medical and regenerative medicine industries. I’d like to thank everyone at BioBridge Global who works diligently every day to help us improve the lives of those who are ill and injured. BioBridge Global serves patients and supports research opportunities through the continued collaborations with our biomedical community partners.”
Specific accomplishments that supported Myers’ nomination were helping to bring the World Stem Cell Summit to San Antonio in December 2014, her work in transforming BBG subsidiary QualTex Laboratories into an international leader in infectious disease testing and her vision to build BBG subsidiary GenCure into a major regenerative medicine resource.
