Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America (PhRMA) and BioOhio Legislative Luncheon

March 27 @ 11:30 am - 1:00 pm

We are excited to announce that this year’s legislative luncheon is jointly presented by PhRMA and BioOhio. Our keynote speaker will be Rolf Benirschke, former NFL placekicker, co-founder of Legacy Health Strategies and patient advocate. Rolf’s journey is one of courage, hope, and determination and illustrates the strength of the indomitable human spirit.

Rolf’s third season as a placekicker in the NFL was cut short when he collapsed on a cross-country team flight while battling ulcerative colitis.  He would need two emergency surgeries within six days as his life hung in the balance for six weeks in the intensive care unit.   It was Rolf’s faith, personal drive, family and teammates that encouraged him through those darkest hours and aided in his triumphant and improbable return to the NFL.

Following his NFL career Rolf devoted his life to patient advocacy and to sharing his amazing story. Through his powerful message he issues a stirring challenge – to embrace the devastating circumstances of life and turn them into an incredible opportunity for growth.
