I urge you to take a look at a great oped on the importance of medical innovation by Pennsylvania State Senator John Pippy (Chair of the Pennsylvania State Senate Life Sciences Caucus) in the Observer-Reporter, a daily newspaper in Western Pennsylvania. Among other points, Senator Pippy notes:

These developments, in turn, lead to a reduction in health care costs, rates of hospital visits and long-term care expenses - and our region is at the forefront of these medical innovations."
