NEW YORK — The chief medical officer at one of the largest drug makers in the world has been named "woman of the year" by the Healthcare Businesswomen's Association.

Freda Lewis-Hall, Pfizer's chief medical officer, will be honored at the HBA's 22nd annual "Woman of the Year" luncheon in May.

Lewis-Hall's 30-year career in healthcare leadership includes roles in direct patient care, academics, media, government, pharmaceuticals and biotechnology.

HBA president Deborah Coogan Seltzer said that Lewis-Hall "sets the tone" for those in the industry for her "long-standing commitment to the social responsibilities of healthcare leadership — especially in making sure that people have the education and understanding to make the best healthcare decisions."
