Evidera is pleased to announce that Dr. Jaime Caro, Chief Scientist, is the recipient of ISPOR’s 2016 Marilyn Dix Smith Leadership Award. Marilyn Dix Smith was the Founding Executive Director of ISPOR, conceiving and building the society focused on pharmacoeconomics and outcomes research. Marilyn’s vision was to create an organization that identifies, supports and provides leadership in the field. This award was created to acknowledge one individual each year who has demonstrated a career of extraordinary leadership to ISPOR and the field.
Dr. Caro has played a leadership role in the field for more than 20 years. He has shaped policy in many countries around the world, developed and instructed courses at various universities, held multiple ISPOR leadership positions, and has been instrumental in helping increase the prominence, relevance and impact of the field. ISPOR will present Dr. Caro this award at its annual meeting in Washington, DC this May.
