Saw today that my colleague, Karen Talmadge, has been given the Charles H. Best Medal for Distinguished Service in the Cause of Diabetes.
I am really happy for her. Karen is a first-class professional and brilliant and I have the honor of working with her as a fellow Board Member of Veralight, a non-invasive diabetes screening company in which we are also fellow investors. She was the founder of Kyphon, which is a major success story in the medical device world.
I love working with Karen because she is no-nonsense, smart and experienced, and has a great sense of humor. Congrats to Karen on the well-deserved recognition.
