RareMed Solutions is proud to congratulate our Director of Specialty Markets, Gannon Vanscoy, on his recognition as a 2019 Pittsburgh Business Times 30 Under 30 honoree. Each year, The Pittsburgh Business Times identifies 30 individuals under the age of 30 years, who have accomplished exceptional career milestones and made great contributions to our Pittsburgh community. The 2019 honorees represent a wide range of industries, including game design, public works, real estate, and rare pharmacy services.
“It is a great honor and humbling to be recognized by the Pittsburgh Business Times as an influential person under 30” said Gannon Vanscoy. “It is not only exciting for me, but for RareMed as well. We’ve worked hard to build something special that caters to rare disease patients and biopharmaceutical companies like no pharmacy (hub) services provider has before. We set out to change the industry, to positively affect patient care, and to create a purpose-driven Pittsburgh company. This is my opportunity to contribute to improving the lives of people who need it.”
Numerous previous recipients of the 30 Under 30 award continue to influence Pittsburgh’s businesses and currently serve as many of our CEOs, community leaders, and local entrepreneurs who inspire Pittsburgh’s industrious passions.
