BEIJING, July 31, 2012 /PRNewswire-Asia/ -- GC-Rise Pharmaceutical Co. Ltd, in which European healthcare venture capital firm INVENTAGES holds a majority stake, has launched an obstetrician-gynecologist Honorary Award given to those who have done outstanding achievement in the medical community.
The company on July 15 held the first-ever GC-Rise-Cup ceremony in Hefei, capital city of central China's Anhui province, where awards were presented to 20 obstetrician-gynecologists chosen from around the country.
The 20 final award-winners stood out among 70 candidates after six months' open and fair appraisals by the selection committee.
The winners, with an average age of 80, include the expert who did the first test-tube baby in China, the doctor who was the first to advocate the importance of maternal and infant care and the one who was the first to promote the idea of painless delivery.
The prize, which compares to the 'OSCAR' in the medical industry, was jointly initiated by GC-Rise and China Medical Doctor Association, and is the first-ever and only award pointing to individuals in the medical circle in China.
The move aims to encourage the younger generations to inherit the spirits of the seniors, which shows GC-Rise's consistent commitment to play an active part in the women's health industry by joining hands with experts and professionals in the circle.
