ORLANDO, Fla. — The Healthcare Distribution Alliance (HDA) recognized nine pharmaceutical and consumer product manufacturers with Distribution Industry Awards for Notable Achievements in Healthcare (DIANA Awards) at the 2022 HDA Business and Leadership Conference here.

Established in 1959, the DIANA is one of HDA’s highest honors, recognizing manufacturer members for developing innovative new product introductions and promotions for the healthcare distribution industry, while enhancing business practices with their distributor trading partners. Winning companies, selected by the association’s distributor-member executives, represent exceptional leadership in the healthcare marketplace and exhibit a commitment to advancing supply chain best practices through their active participation in HDA.

“As has been underscored during the pandemic, strong working relationships between HDA distributors and 1,500 manufacturers are essential to ensuring that more than 10 million medicines, healthcare products, vaccines and medical supplies are delivered safely and reliably to Americans each day,” said Chester “Chip” Davis, Jr., President and CEO, HDA. “We congratulate our 2022 DIANA honorees for rising to the unique challenges of the past few years and setting the standards for innovation and collaboration in the healthcare supply chain.”
