On May 14, Teva’s own Michelle Cuccia, Marketing Vice President–Growth Markets, was honored at the annual Healthcare Businesswomen’s Association (HBA) Woman of the Year luncheon. The event was held at the New York Hilton Mid-Town and nearly 2,500 leaders across the pharmaceutical industry celebrated this year's HBA honorees.

The event and the awards presented are an essential part of how the HBA advances its mission. Honorees serve as role models for other women to aspire to, as well as for companies to consider how they are supporting the advancement of women within their own organization.

Michelle says, “This recognition by HBA gives me a great sense of pride and confidence. Thanks to Teva for the commitment to inclusion and women's empowerment principles. I hope that this award helps to inspire other women within our company."

Michelle was named an HBA Rising Star during the luncheon which was attended by Siggi Olafsson, President & CEO Global Generic Medicines; Tina Gilbert, Director of Diversity and Inclusion and by Teva’s Rising Stars. Teva Rising Stars are women across our business and functional organizations recognized for their contributions over the past year and for consistently living Teva's Values.
