Every year, seven endoscopy teams are highlighted in EndoNurse magazine with a picture and article, and Medivators sends a plaque to the team to commemorate their win. Now, Medivators takes this special program one step further by sponsoring the EndoNurse All-Star-of-the-Year award. Annually, the EndoNurse magazine staff will choose the best of the seven All-Star teams to be the All-Star-of-the-Year winner. This lucky team, chosen for overall excellence in how the members care for each other and patients, will receive a $2,500 educational sponsorship from Medivators.
