CEO Roundtable


CEO Roundtable | April 7 | New York, N.Y.

2020 CEO Roundtable Fundraiser Postponed

As the country grapples with the rapidly evolving COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic, and with the CDC's latest guidance for organizations to limit the size of public gatherings, the HDA Research Foundation is postponing the upcoming CEO Roundtable that was slated to be held at The St. Regis New York on April 7

Please know the safety and well-being of our attendees is our number one priority, and all of us at the Foundation sincerely appreciate and thank you for your support at this time. Special thanks also go to the dinner’s sponsors: Apotex, Genentech, Mylan, Amneal Pharmaceuticals and IQVIA.

At this time, our plan is to reschedule the dinner for a time in the fall. We will contact registrants once a new date is confirmed with the hotel and our featured guest, Walgreens’ Alex Gourlay.

Thank you for your understanding. If you have any questions, please contact Lisa Kanfer.
