My intention in entering this space was to empower people with truths that will allow them to make better decisions supporting their long-term neurological and overall health.

Alicia Kali—Founder, CEO and Chief Scientific Officer of Panacea Biomed—was honored with a Silver award at the Stevie® Awards for Women in Business in the category of Woman of the Year for the work she leads with her non-profit organization, Purpose DRV’N.

The Stevie Awards for Women in Business honor women executives, entrepreneurs, employees and the companies they run – worldwide. The Stevie Awards have been hailed as the world’s premier business awards.

As a response to the lack of knowledge surrounding concussion, post-concussion syndrome, Mild Traumatic Brain Injury (MTBI) and CTE, Alicia Kali, founded Purpose DRV’N—a non-profit organization dedicated to education, outreach and research to lend her scientific discoveries and vast experience to this often-misunderstood area of health. Kali's life’s work of over 30 years in the study of the biochemical center of health in humans, animals and plants; the sympathetic nervous system and brains shared biochemistry has produced patents that show regeneration of neurotransmitters, neurons and dissipation of tau proteins, all lost or damaged in concussion and related maladies. Kali’s groundbreaking science and direct experience with PCS inspired her to share her work and expertise with those in need. Purpose DRV’N also seeks to support and advocate for programs aimed to improve the welfare, education, and recovery of those suffering from or at risk of concussion.

With hundreds of businesswomen and their guests in attendance, the awards were announced at a gala dinner at the Sheraton New York Times Square Hotel in New York City on Friday, November 16, 2018. More than 1,500 entries were submitted this year for consideration, Kali was in the most contested category “Woman of the Year”.

Winners were determined by the average scores of more than 200 business professionals around the world, working on five juries. Their scores determined the Gold, Silver, and Bronze Stevie Award placements.

“The many who have followed my story on social media know the tenacity I have demonstrated in getting this answer to the world—just seven years ago I was struggling with my own MTBI and other severe diagnoses, with nothing to my name except my research. I’ve since had the opportunity to lean on the healing properties of my own work, healing myself and sharing my findings with the public at large,” says Purpose DRV’N Founder Alicia Kali. “It is extremely rewarding to be embraced for my non-profit work, this along with overwhelming support of the scientific community is truly thrilling. My intention in entering this space was to empower people with truths that will allow them to make better decisions supporting their long-term neurological and overall health.”
