Cathy Bodine of the University of Colorado School of Medicine is among the winners of the 11th Annual Outstanding Women in Business Awards presented by the Denver Business Journal.

Bodine, executive director of Assistive Technology Partners (ATP) in the Department of Rehabilitative Medicine, topped a competitive field in the health care category.

Nominees earned points for innovation, entrepreneurship, professional accomplishments and community leadership. A ceremony announcing the winners and finalists took place Aug. 27 at the Marriott City Center in Denver.

In the newspaper's coverage, Bodine attributed her success to colleagues at ATP.

"I made a decision a long time ago to surround myself with excellence, and the faculty and staff are unbeatable in their focus and dedication," Bodine said. "They're literally the best in the world at what they do." She recently noted that her team has brought in $30 million in sponsored projects to CU over the years.

Look for nomination forms for the 2010 Outstanding Women in Business on the Denver Business Journal Web site in January 2010.
