Spotlight on Daniel Di Lucia

What inspired you to get into your line of work?
I have always had a passion for medicine and healthcare and wanted to leverage that to have a meaningful impact on both the industry and, more importantly, the patients. My job involves conceiving and implementing strategies on behalf of pharmaceutical companies to ensure medications reach those who need them most.
How do you prioritize self-care?
I view self-care as the single most important thing we can practice. Nutrition and exercise not only have positive impacts on our physical health, but have well-documented effects on mental health and productivity also.
What are your top strategies for networking?
I'm a big believer in quality over quantity. I prioritize spending the time to establish a genuine connection with one person over having surface interactions with 10. The most efficient way, in my opinion, to network is by tapping into other peoples networks. This is only achievable though establishing a genuine friendship with someone, which takes time.
