The 2021 Q3 Wave the Flag recipient was awarded to Peggy Smith a Research Nurse at San Antonio Military Medical Center in San Antonio, TX. Peggy was nominated by Shawn Potts, Peggy’s manager, for exhibiting Geneva’s core value of superior customer service.

“Peggy constantly will go the extra mile to make sure the task is completed ahead of schedule and done above expectations,” said Shawn Potts. “She does as much as she can to make the experience as easy as possible while ensuring that the study is conducted according to protocol and IRB requirements.
