'90 Anne Klamar, MD awarded the Archie M. Griffin Professional Achievement Award 

 
Dr, Anne Klamar was recently awarded the Archie Griffin Professional Achievement Award which is presented to an alumni who have superb records of distinguished career accomplishments and who have made outstanding contributions to their professions.

After a residency in family medicine, she began a medical practice while helping her families’ business, Midmark, Inc. — a global manufacturer and supplier of medical, dental and veterinary equipment, products and diagnostic software celebrating its 100th year in 2015. Through her work at Midmark, Klamar has become an international industry leader whose business prowess helped her rise to president in 2000 and CEO in 2003, helping it grow through the acquisition of eight companies while extending its global outreach.

Klamar’s leadership has placed Midmark on the path toward $1 billion in annual sales as it has expanded to employ more than 1,600 teammates worldwide. Midmark has also been named one of the Healthiest Companies in America every year since 2007.

“Midmark is now a global economic engine in Ohio,” wrote Lonnie King, dean and professor in Ohio State’s College of Veterinary Medicine. “Klamar has the rare combination of corporate executive and doctor.”

Meanwhile, her work as an educator and mentor has had an amazing impact. Among her many overseas efforts, Klamar funds and works to educate girls in Kenya to allow them the ability to attend high school and pursue careers. Her mentoring doesn’t end there. She contributes to Ohio State’s College of Medicine’s Women in White Coats program, mentoring female students. She also co-founded and chairs Professional Women in Healthcare, a nationwide mentorship, education and networking organization of more than 500 women in health care.

Her pursuits as a healer also know no bounds — or borders — as Klamar and her husband, Dr. Rob Klamar, helped establish the Kishon Clinic, a medical and dental clinic in rural Kenya that offers clinical care in an area that desperately needs it. This facility serves as a clinical training site for Ohio State medical students focused on global health.

Anne and Rob Klamar are also very active College of Medicine alumni volunteers. They generously gifted Ohio State with $100,000 for travel scholarships for medical students interested in global health rotations.
