Q: What about the generics market excites you? What possibilities are in the future?
A: Generics offer people options, expanding access to much needed medications and solutions that may otherwise be inaccessible. I believe that generics are an important part of the solution when it comes to access, supply and healthcare equity.
Q: What sets Long Grove apart?
A: Long Grove is not afraid of a challenge, we are seeking out difficult and high barrier to entry products that the market needs and we are passionate about finding solutions. The culture is built on innovation and the openness to opportunities, with a willingness to pivot as conditions change. Being dynamic in an industry that is very rigid is one of the most exciting and appealing parts of working here at Long Grove.
