Richard Gephardt, former Majority Leader of the U.S. House of Representatives, President and CEO of Gephardt Government Affairs and chairman of the Council for American Medical Innovation, moderated the Best and Brightest Forum on Medical Innovation. The forum highlighted the contributions of innovators in the state, and addressed the challenges facing the life sciences sector here. Participants in the forum called for new policies to support medical innovation, science and discovery - suggesting that discoveries in the life sciences and medicine are critical to economic recovery in Rhode Island and across the country.

"Medical innovation has an enormous impact on the health and economy of the United States and it is an integral part of Rhode Island's economy," Gephardt said. "When we find ways to support medical innovation, we create jobs, drive investment and improve our health. While America still leads the world in science and technology, other countries are gaining on us at amazing speeds. We need to act now by laying a strong foundation with intelligent policies that will preserve our leadership in medical innovation and allow science and medical discovery to flourish today, tomorrow and into the future."
