In Memory of Gerald "Jerry" Matczak
Gerald "Jerry" Matczak, lead consultant in clinical innovation at Eli Lilly & Co., was a rare breed in the pharmaceutical world,
someone who not only embraced social media, but also listened to activist patients. He has been a part of the SCOPE conference since its inception and
won the Patient Engagement Award on Wednesday, the day before his passing. Matczak died suddenly on Feb. 2 at age 54. We will all miss him.
