Owens & Minor is pleased to announce the winners of the 2019 Earl G. Reubel Awards, which were presented on Thursday evening, November 7, at a gala dinner hosted by Owens & Minor and Kerma Medical Products in Richmond, Virginia. The annual awards recognize healthcare industry leaders — individuals and organizations — who advocate for diversity and inclusion within the healthcare supply chain.
The Earl G. Reubel Awards, created by Owens & Minor in 2012, are given in three healthcare industry categories: Civic Leadership, Diversity Enterprise and Large Corporate Leadership. The awards are named in honor of the late Earl G. Reubel, the brilliant entrepreneur who built Kerma Medical Products into one of the largest veteran-, minority-owned medical supply companies in the country, and one of Owens & Minor’s largest minority suppliers for over 30 years.
