On July 26, Senator Kay Hagan, NC House Speaker Thom Tillis and a diverse group of NC biopharmaceutical suppliers and supportive nonprofit organizations participated in an inaugural "We Work for Health NC Supplier Outreach Event" on GSK's campus in Research Triangle Park, North Carolina. The biotech industry drives much of North Carolina's economy, and Research Triangle Park--site of GSK's US commercial headquarters as well as many of our R&D operations--is at the center.
Together with NC BIO, the NC Chamber, and the We Work for Health Initiative, we brought together about 100 business leaders, policy makers and non-profit leaders to celebrate the industry, and discuss the sector's economic impact and opportunities for growth. (That's Scott in the pic, he helped organize the event.)
The day focused on how we can help encourage public policies that strengthen our industry and support those that we work with to ensure we can continue to develop, manufacture and deliver medical innovation to patients in North Carolina, the US, and around the world.
