The Baucom Institute for Longevity & Life Enhancement has received the 2013 Kansas Minority-Owned Professional Service Firm of the Year Award from the Kansas Department of Commerce Office of Minority and Women Business Development.
Dr. Karan Baucom accepted the honor at the annual Minority Enterprise Development Week luncheon, Oct. 8, 2013, in Topeka, Kansas. The Baucom Institute was selected for the award based on business leadership, company culture, community impact, sustained growth, and dedication to ethical business practices.
The event recognized 13 companies and three individuals for their support of Kansas minority and women-owned businesses and their efforts to create opportunities. The luncheon took place during Kansas Minority Enterprise Development (MED) Week, the Department’s annual celebration of minority and women entrepreneurs in Kansas.
“Minority and women-owned businesses make critical contributions to the Kansas economy as innovators, entrepreneurs and job creators,” Kansas Commerce Secretary Pat George said. “Minority Enterprise Development Week provides us with a great way to honor these businesses and individuals for everything that they do to make Kansas a wonderful place to live and work.”
Congratulations to Dr. Baucom and Manager, Nancy Gardner, and the staff for their continued success with The Baucom Institute.
