"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. That means implementing policies at the national level that increase incentives for investment in research, development and its application, and increasing budgets for quality education."

  • Kathy Davis, Former Lieutenant Governor, State of Indiana
  • Richard Gephardt, President of the Council for American Medical Innovation
  • Dr. Richard Mohs, Lead Alzheimer's Researcher, Eli Lilly
