Join us for the spring Anthony J. Risica Lecture Series presentation.
Hear the inside story of Pfizer’s COVID-19 vaccine supply chain that produced over 5 billion doses and distributed them to more than 1.7 billion patients by the end of 2022. Jim Cafone ’88, M.S.’90, Pfizer’s senior vice president of global supply chain, will explain how the company successfully designed a supply chain for brand-new technology requiring a specialized, temperature-controlled transportation and distribution network—all in less than one year. For Cafone, unlocking a vaccine for COVID-19 and getting it to as many people as possible, as quickly as possible, felt like a moral imperative. Learn how his team rallied to meet that unprecedented challenge.
Lecture begins at 4:30 p.m.; reception to follow.
