The MedZilla Report for January 2010 - Health Care Closes 2009 Strong, But Pharma Continues Shedding Jobs
Date:1/23/2010

As an extremely difficult year came to a close, the health care industry remained a bright spot in terms of employment growth. But that was offset by a rough ride for pharmaceuticals, which shed more than 60,000 jobs in 2009.
