On March 19, 2015, PILMA participated in the DE, PA and NJ Life Sciences: Finding Cures, Creating Jobs event held at the Cannon House Office Building. The interactive display presentations showcased significant contributions that life sciences companies from Delaware, New Jersey and Pennsylvania make to global health, the local economy and workforces.  PILMA

stood out among the participants due to its specific focus on job creation and connection to labor unions in the participating states.

Event sponsors included BioNJ, Delaware Bio, Health Care Institute of New Jersey, Pennsylvania Bio and We Work for Health. Other event participants included AstraZeneca, Celgene, Merck, Community Liver Alliance, New Jersey Association of Mental Health and Addiction Agencies (NJAMHAA) and PAREXEL.
