PDA Establishment of New Chapter

Bethesda, Md., July 15, 2010 – The Parenteral Drug Association (PDA) is proud to announce the founding of the Missouri Valley Chapter, which will serve PDA members in Iowa, Kansas, Missouri and Nebraska.

 “This new chapter will bring excellent local programming to a significant segment of the PDA membership, and hopefully will attract new members who have not had the chance to experience the benefits of PDA before,” said PDA President Richard M. Johnson.

Based in the Kansas City and St. Louis areas, the chapter will cater especially to PDA members and Industry leaders in the same territory as the Kansas City FDA District.  Thomas Pamukcoglu of SAFC Biosciences will serve as the first Missouri Valley Chapter President.  He will be joined by Chapter President-Elect Kenneth Boone, Covidien, Chapter Treasurer Keith Koehler, Acceleration LLC, and Chapter Secretary Jeff Hargroves, ProPharma Group Inc.
