Gemeinhardt Appointed To Baldrige Award Board of Examiners

6/26/02


HOUSTON — Texas Woman's University faculty member Dr. Gretchen Gemeinhardt, an assistant professor of health care administration on TWU's Houston campus, has been appointed to the 2002 Board of Examiners for the Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award. The award, created by Congress in 1987, is the highest level of national recognition for performance and excellence that an organization in the United States can receive.

As an examiner, Dr. Gemeinhardt is responsible for reviewing and evaluating award applications. The board is composed of about 400 leading experts selected from industry, professional and trade organizations, education and health care organizations and government.

Those selected to serve on the board meet the highest standards of qualification and peer recognition, according to MBNQA officials.

Awards are given annually in each of five categories: manufacturing, service, small business, education and health care.

Dr. Gemeinhardt was appointed to the board by Arden Bement, director of the National Institute of Standards and Technology. NIST manages the award program.
