Innovation to develop better and more effective treatments has been the lifeblood of health care. Incentives for innovation in product development have been critical to the progress that’s been made over the past 50 years. But product innovation is part of a continuum of innovation in health that starts with preventing disease in the first place, moves to treatment innovation, and includes broader solutions and approaches that will expand value to the entire health care system.

Alex Gorsky is Chief Executive Officer of Johnson & Johnson and Chairman of the Executive Committee, the Company’s senior leadership team. Alex is the seventh person to serve as CEO of Johnson & Johnson since it became a publicly traded company in 1944. Alex is also a member of the Company’s Board of Directors.
