Indiana

Hoosiers Work For Health is the Indiana chapter of a national initiative that unites health consumers, biopharmaceutical company employees, vendors, suppliers and other business and community partners to demonstrate how these diverse groups are vital to Indiana’s socioeconomic climate, and provide shared benefits and a better quality of life to all.

Specifically, the partnership includes local chambers of commerce and research centers, labor, businesses, patient advocacy organizations, provider groups and biopharmaceutical research companies that work together to improve America’s health care system and strengthen our economy.

The biopharmaceutical sector is the foundation of one of Indiana’s most dynamic innovation and business ecosystems. Not only does the industry invest heavily in the research and development of new treatments and cures, it also generates high quality jobs, powers economic output and exports for the U.S. economy and sustains a very large-scale supply chain.

As Lilly develops facilities plans across the country and worldwide, D.R. includes the Government Affairs team in the planning process to help understand assets on the ground in high-impact locations and how a policy shift might change the economic metrics of a decision. He has a deep knowledge of the industry, and when Lilly engages policymakers at the state and federal level, D.R. is part of the team that walks them through the facilities, explains how the supply chain works and discusses how decisions made in legislative committee rooms and regulatory bodies impact Lilly in meaningful ways.
