Becky Bunderson was recently recognized with the Advocate Award by Education Management Solutions (EMS) for her role in advocating learning through simulation. Bunderson received the award on Jan. 5 at the International Society for Simulation in Healthcare Conference in New Orleans, Louisiana.

EMS is an industry pioneer in simulation-based solutions for healthcare training environments ranging from clinical simulation management software and hardware to counselor education.

Each year, EMS nominates three individuals who work in businesses employing EMS products across the nation who are pioneering advocates in clinical simulation education. The nominees are then voted on by EMS customers, all of whom are simulation specialists.
