Quorum Review IRB, the industry leader in central IRB services, has been awarded accreditation by the International Association of Six Sigma Certification (IASSC) for its Lean Six Sigma Deployment Program.

Quorum’s CEO Cami Gearhart says of the new designation, “I’m proud of this award as it reflects Quorum’s continued commitment to and investment in excellence. I congratulate our dedicated staff and look forward to offering improved performance to our clients.”
