U.S. Senator Tom Carper honored for job creation through innovation

wwfh1 resized 600We Work for Health Delaware (WWFH – DE) and the Delaware BioScience Association recognized U.S. Senator Tom Carper as a “Champion for Continued Jobs Creation Through Innovation.” Senator Carper’s support of key legislative issues impacting the biotech industry, such as the America Invents Act, speak volumes about his commitment to protecting jobs in Delaware. Delaware is an established leader in the biotechnology industry. It is home to some of the world’s largest biotech companies. These companies provide not only jobs and revenue, but also much needed research used to combat some of our most serious medical challenges. It’s important that we do all that we can to protect this industry, and the jobs it creates for our citizens. WWFH – DE and Delaware Bio thank Senator Carper for being a leader in the Senate on issues critical to the continued success of the biopharmaceutical and healthcare industries in Delaware and for being champion of innovation.

Here’s our message to Senator Carper:
