Message from the Chair: The Greatest Spectacle in Pharma
I live in Indianapolis, Indiana, truly a great place to live. It is not difficult to understand why I like Indy so much: humble, down-to-earth people, farming (I grew up on a farm), readily available participant sports, and many spectator sporting event opportunities including football, soccer, baseball, and racing. Especially during the month of May, racing and the Indy 500 in particular are spectacular. I “attended” my 27th or so race in person in 2020 (sitting outside the fence and watching on the big screen) and there is never a year when goose bumps don’t raise on my arms as the 33 fastest oval track race cars in the world scream to the start in three-wide formation. The Indy 500 is held on Memorial Day weekend and there are many associated meaningful traditions. It is no surprise the race is referred to as the Greatest Spectacle in Racing.
