US Specialty Formulations co-founder one of few Blacks in pharmaceutical leadership positions

USSF is Developing an Oral COVID Vaccine.

For Dr. Kyle Flanigan of Bethlehem, one of few African Americans in a pharmaceutical business leadership position, getting into the field wasn’t a challenge; it was what came afterward.
“The challenge for Black people in this industry is recognition and promotion,” said Flanigan, co-founder and chief executive officer of US Specialty Formulations, which makes medications and vaccines.

“The numerous systemic and institutional challenges for Blacks have been well documented by others,” said Flanigan. His focus is on making USSF the first company to get an oral COVID vaccine approved for public use. That history-making accomplishment could add Flanigan to the list of people whose contributions are celebrated during Black History Month. Via The Morning Call
