It’s Award of Hope has been given over the last 16 years to recognize those who have demonstrated untiring leadership and a deep commitment to serving the needs of people with cancer.
Mignon, President of inVentiv Health Selling Solutions, was introduced to the Cancer Institute in 2001 when a close friend was diagnosed with cancer. Witnessing his friend’s battle first-hand inspired Mignon to get involved. Over time, he became an ambassador for the Cancer Institute, personally and professionally, helping to raise funds that enabled the growth of the Institute into one of the nation’s leading cancer centers.
He established a partnership between the Institute and inVentiv, recognizing that both organizations in different ways shared an interest in delivering extraordinary outcomes to patients. inVentiv has been a regular contributor to the Institute’s work, while the Institute has helped inVentiv by providing cancer education for employees. The partnership has endured for nearly a decade.
“We are proud of Paul and grateful to him for suggesting ways in which we could partner in supporting one of New Jersey’s most distinguished health care institutions,” said Paul Meister, CEO of inVentiv Health. “We are very honored to be recognized in this way.”
