Healthcare donations to the Democratic Convention, all high and mighty...and some are speaking as well, healthcare, at the top of the heap for repair! BD
The health-care industry has a lot at stake in Washington these days. Maybe that’s why the list of the Democratic convention’s host-committee sponsors is so full of big players from the health sector.
Among them: Merck, Amgen, Pfizer, AstraZeneca, Novartis, Mylan, Medtronic — (pause for breath) — Abbott, Walgreen, UnitedHealth, Eli Lilly and Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield.
Nor are the companies letting the money do the talking. The CEOs of Pfizer, AstraZeneca, Eli Lilly, Amgen and Merck are all making appearances in Denver this week, reports FDA Legislative Watch.
And Pfizer was among the million-dollar donors that landed skyboxes at Invesco Field for Obama’s big speech Thursday, the Dallas Morning News reports.
