The Society for Penn Clinical Research Professionals is thrilled to announce the annual clinical research professional recognition awards, formerly CARE Awards, now relaunched as the CREATE Awards: Clinical Research Expertise & Advancement Through Excellence

Our award categories have been reimagined for broader inclusivity allowing for us to recognize all of the Clinical Research Professionals (CRPs) that contribute to the success of Penn Medicine’s Clinical Research Enterprise.
