"Medical innovation in Indiana is creating jobs and strengthening the economy," said Gephardt. "We must do what is necessary to preserve an environment here, and around the country, where science and discovery can thrive.

  • Kathy Davis, Former Lieutenant Governor, State of Indiana
  • Richard Gephardt, President of the Council for American Medical Innovation
