MAPLE GROVE, Minn., June 8, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Upsher-Smith Laboratories, Inc. announced today that it was honored with the prestigious Distribution Industry Award for Notable Achievements in Healthcare (DIANA) presented by the Healthcare Distribution Management Association (HDMA).  The award was for the "Best Branded Pharmaceutical Product Manufacturer with Sales to Healthcare Distributors of Less Than $300 Million."  The HDMA presented the award at a celebration recognizing leading pharmaceutical and consumer product manufacturers for their leadership and innovation at its 2011 Business & Leadership Conference in Phoenix, AZ on June 6.
