PDA Midwest Chapter

President: Alan Solomon

Baxter Healthcare Corporation


The Midwest Chapter serves pharmaceutical professionals and educational organizations from the Midwestern United States. Our events draw individuals from states such as Illinois, Michigan, Wisconsin, Ohio, Minnesota and Indiana, with a focus in the Chicago area.

Our dinner meetings with guest speakers on varied topics are informative and entertaining. We work with businesses to allow them to promote their products in an effort to match the best products and services for our members. We look to create dialogue that illustrates what are the "industry standards" and "best practices" that are most successful based on empirical uses. We initiate discussions regarding regulatory (FDA, EU, etc.) trends and expectations. We also generate networking events on an annual basis.

We look forward to more involved membership and serving your needs. Please contact us using the link above with questions, concerns and/or feedback.
