The United States -- and Maryland, in particular -- has been a worldwide leader in medical innovation and scientific discovery. Medical innovation is a critical element of our state's and nation's economy. Maryland medical innovators create thousands of high-paying jobs, and their discoveries are integral in the fight to cure cancer and other illnesses. We Work for Health believes that Maryland could innovate its way out of the economic crisis by adopting public policies that advance medical innovation and progress.
