Inside Look at the 2020 Indiana Legislative Session

The Indiana House and Senate Health committees have full plates of issues they’ll be grappling with in the 2020 session of the Indiana General Assembly. From building on feedback from an extensive summer study committee exploring pricing transparency across the pharmaceutical supply chain, to grappling with a variety of public health concerns, this year’s legislative session is poised to be one of the most impactful on Hoosiers’ healthcare for years to come. Please join us as we get an inside look at how the 2020 session is shaping up and how some specific pieces of legislation may make a big impact on Hoosiers’ healthcare and the state’s life science sector going forward.
