"We had important discussions around the future of the healthcare supply chain and how lessons learned through COVID can be applied moving forward as [legislators] consider additional policies on how to strengthen the pharmaceutical and healthcare ecosystem," said HDA's President and CEO Chip Davis, reflecting on the visits.

Following the meetings, Board members were joined by elected officials and guests, as spotted by POLITICO, at HDA's Open House reception to see our new headquarters located in downtown Washington, D.C. The location provides HDA's members and team greater access to policymakers as we voice our perspectives on relevant and impactful legislation. "HDA and our members have a lot of work to do moving forward … we now have a great spot to call home from which we can [take on our new strategic initiatives]," said Davis.
