Welcome to our second edition of the PM360 ELITE. In this issue we present the Exceptional Leaders, Innovators, Transformers, and Entrepreneurs from across the healthcare industry—extraordinary people who give their all to change the healthcare industry for the betterment of all those who depend upon it.
This year, we were overcome by the more than 500 nominations from the bosses, clients, friends, and colleagues of those whose cumulative endeavors elevate them in their peer’s eyes—and inspire them to take risks, to create, to innovate. Many were so remarkable that we had to expand our awards to include 100 of the industry’s best, more precisely, the best of the best, in 16 categories.
Among the extraordinary individuals highlighted, the one individual who embodies the apex of our industry, this year’s Uber ELITE winner, Dr. Andrew L. Pecora, is renowned internationally for his innovative breakthroughs in the field of oncology and recognized as one of the world’s foremost experts in blood and marrow stem transplantation, cellular medicine, and immunology. See PM360’s exclusive interview to learn more about his cutting-edge work.
Dr. Pecora will also be the Keynote Speaker at our celebratory cocktail party at The Top of The Standard Hotel in New York City’s Meatpacking District, where we will applaud our winners’ accomplishments. Join us for the opportunity to meet, network, and draw the inspiration to push innovation on July 12th at 7:00 PM. (Purchase tickets at www.pm360online.com/elitetickets.)
Also in this issue, The Snow Companies’ Nadine McGowan takes a deep dive into the world of rare diseases, stressing the importance of making big efforts to find these patients, who are often disengaged and uniformed. New therapies targeted to these individual diseases not only help patients effectively manage their illnesses, but also offer economic incentives to companies to continue to develop the treatments that reduce suffering.
Finally, PM360 presents our second Circle of Excellence in media partnership with Cannes Lions Health. Eight prominent thought leaders address methods to balance risk and creativity—and the bravery it takes to create compelling campaigns.
