About the Joseph X. Phillips Professional Achievement Award (from the ISPE website):

This award honors an ISPE Member who has made a significant contribution to the Industry, not just ISPE. Named in honor of Joe Phillips, longtime supporter of ISPE and a leader in establishing the Society as an “integrator” of industry and regulators, both during his years of service with the FDA and later when he became International Regulatory Affairs Advisor to ISPE, this award is given infrequently to recognize the extraordinary contributions of its recipients.

Please join us in congratulating Fran for this prestigious award recognizing all that she continues to do for our industry!
