The 2019 Pharmaceutical Industrial Association (PIA) annual meeting is the only event in Puerto Rico focused on pharmaceutical innovation. This year, under the slogan “Faces of Innovation: Advancing the way Science Cares for Patients”, PIA highlighted the role different faces play in search of innovation: from scientists and engineers who work every day to produce new therapies, and patients who enjoy a better quality of life thanks to innovative medicines.
During the event the latest trends were presented, both in the United States and in Puerto Rico of bio-pharmaceutical innovation. In addition, it is always the meeting point to promote the exchange of ideas and best practices among members of the industry.
Again, this year PACIV exhibited at PIA and offered freshly brew coffee to the attendees. Also, our CEO and Founder, Jorge Rodríguez, presented the first speaker at the conference, Dr. Antonia C. Novello, M.D., MPH, Dr.PH, and 14th Surgeon General of the United States, who addressed the audience with the topic, “The Impact of Innovation on Public Health.”
It was an intense and productive day of learning how these innovative products are enhancing the well-being of the patients. There were three testimonial videos presented at the conference that depicted the incredible benefits these medications represented in the quality of life they have achieved.
