Each year, THBI hosts the Summit and Luminary Awards events to highlight world-class innovation taking place across the state and to educate state policy leaders. The Luminary Awards provide an opportunity to highlight industry leaders who have furthered innovation in Texas with the presentation of the annual Luminary Awards at a dinner,
The 2021 Fall Policy Summit & Luminary Dinner marked our first in-person event since the 2019 Fall Summit and included conversations highlighting health policy initiatives and issues impacting patient access, research and development, and the future of the healthcare and life sciences industries in Texas. The audience included members of the Texas Legislature and their staff, the Texas Congressional delegation members and their staff, state agency staff, patient groups, THBI members and life science industry professionals.
The 2021 Luminary Awards were given to U.S. Congressman Dan Crenshaw, Texas State Senator Lois Kolkhorst, Texas State Representative Toni Rose and THBI's own Tom Kowalski, honoring their contributions and efforts to further the development of the life science industry in Texas.
