Andrew Carter, JD, Contracts and Grants Administrator for the MedStar Georgetown Cancer Network was awarded the SPIRIT of Excellence Award for this year’s third quarter. The award was presented to Mr. Carter by Neil Weissman, MD, president of MHRI.

Mr. Carter works closely with many associates at both MedStar Health and Georgetown University through the Office of Sponsored Research, collaborating with associates from Georgetown’s institutional review board, Lombardi Comprehensive Cancer Center, and the Clinical Trial Management Office. Christina Stanger, MA, CRA, Director, Office of Contracts and Grants Management, and Chad League, JD, Manager, Office of Contracts and Grants Management, were on hand when the award was presented to highlight aspects of Mr. Carter’s invaluable work for MHRI and how he exemplifies the SPIRIT values.

“He is focused on ensuring stakeholders are happy, setting an HRO example for his counterparts, and keeping up a level of quality that we can stand behind,” said Ms. Stanger. In addition to managing his own work portfolio, he has stepped up for the team, covering open positions so that work is completed and creating workflows to support projects.

The SPIRIT Award is given to recognize and reward one associate (management or non-management) each quarter, who excels in Service, Patient First, Integrity, Respect, Innovation, and Teamwork.
