HBA Fairfield County is thrilled to recognize Rachel McGovern as an Honored Volunteer. Rachel is an associate director of clinical operations at Purdue Pharma. This is Rachel’s first year as a member and volunteer for the HBA. With a recent career move to Purdue Pharma, she was interested in connecting and networking professionally.
Upon reading an internal Purdue email from Alexis Stroud, HBA Fairfield County chapter president, she used that as an opportunity to network with Alexis to learn about the HBA. Because her day-to-day activities are more scientifically oriented, she was interested in volunteering to learn new skills through the marketing and communications committee. She is currently the vice president of HBA Fairfield County.
Rachel suggests that anyone interested should pursue a volunteer opportunity. It’s a great way to meet people through a supportive group and you can be involved as much or as little as your time permits. As a first time attendee to the recent HBA Annual Conference, Rachel was excited to meet people with a variety of backgrounds and from various industries who are passionate about healthcare and learning from each other.
Thank you, Rachel, for your contributions to the HBA.
