Health Decisions’ CMO Andrea Lukes Named a Health Care Hero
Triangle Business Journal Honors Dr. Andrea Lukes for Contributions to Women’s Health in Patient Care, Clinical Research and the Biopharma Industry
Durham, North Carolina. Health Decisions, Inc., the full-service clinical research organization of choice for forward-looking biopharma and medical device companies and a leader in women’s health and diagnostics studies, today announced that Chief Medical Officer Andrea S. Lukes, MD, MHSc, FACOG, has been honored as a Health Care Hero by Triangle Business Journal.
“Health Decisions is delighted that the Triangle Business Journal awards committee joins us in recognizing Andrea Lukes’ important contributions to women’s health in caring for her patients, participating in novel product development to improve health-care outcomes for women and advising biopharma and medical device companies on product development strategy,” said Health Decisions CEO Patrick Phillips, BSc (Hons), D.Phil. “Like Health Decisions, Andrea has an unwavering commitment to improving health-care outcomes for all women globally.”
“I greatly appreciate the recognition from the Triangle Business Journal,” said Dr. Lukes, a board-certified OB/GYN. “I have always considered it a true privilege to be a woman’s doctor. I love seeing my patients. Some days I learn more from my patients than I probably teach or help them. Thankfully, I also have an incredible staff at my clinic (Women’s Wellness Clinic) and research center (Carolina Women’s Research and Wellness Center). In addition to my practice, I also had the opportunity to join Health Decisions in mid-2017. This is an impressive CRO that has extensive therapeutic and operational expertise. Working with Health Decisions gives me an opportunity to impact women’s health in a broader context. I am honored to receive this award.”
The Health Care Heroes awards “…honor Triangle individuals and organizations for putting innovation and compassion to work to improve the human condition.” The 2018 award winners will be honored at an awards dinner March 8 at Prestonwood Country Club in Cary, North Carolina.
