On May 3rd, the Healthcare Businesswomen’s Association held its annual Woman of the Year event. This year
the WOTY was Julie Gerberding, MD, MPH, and executive vice president for strategic communications, global
public policy and population health and chief patient officer, Merck & Co., Inc. We will be doing an in-depth
profile of Julie later in the year, but you can also see her in this issue, where we cover her Lifetime Achievement
Award at eyeforpharma Philadelphia. We took the opportunity at the HBA event to further our exploration into
the many reasons people have chosen to work in this field. Here are the results of our current outing.
