Once  in a while, you find a company that's doing great things. American Well is one  of those and I am pleased that they won the Gold Award for INNOVATIVE  SERVICES - Health, Wellness and Safety in the 2011 Edison Awards competition.  Go to their website  and read about how they are transforming healthcare. If you are in Minnesota, you know about their services. And if you frequent Rite Aid, you know about  their services. Of the several companies that I personally encouraged to apply,  American Well came out a winner, placing with a field populated by Ford, Coca Cola, GE and many other well known brands. For a new company, this is great  exposure and terrific feedback that what they are doing is important and  appreciated.

In 2012, four of my five nominees won well-deserved awards. They are:
