Lawrenceville, NJ, USA—August 4, 2020—ISPOR, the professional society for health economics and outcomes research (HEOR), announced today the appointment of 2 new Editors-in-Chief for its HEOR news magazine, Value & Outcomes Spotlight. Longtime members and leaders, Zeba M. Khan, RPh, PhD (former vice president of Celgene Corporation in Summit, New Jersey USA) and Laura T. Pizzi, PharmD, MPH (professor and director of the Center for Health Outcomes, Policy, and Economics at the Ernest Mario School of Pharmacy at Rutgers University in New Brunswick, New Jersey, USA) will share the responsibility of steering the editorial direction of the publication and developing engaging content that will resonate with both HEOR expert and nonexpert audiences around the world.

Dr Khan has more than 25 years of executive level experience in the industry, with many connections to key audiences for ISPOR. She also has been a member of the Society’s Board of Directors and plans to use this keen insight into aligning the magazine with ISPOR’s strategic plan. Dr Pizzi’s experience as an educator and author will help contributors focus on the “so what” aspects of the research to make the content more accessible for the magazine’s broadening audience—from other health economists and outcomes researchers, to payers and physicians, and to patient advocates and new professionals entering the field.

Both Drs Khan and Pizzi have a longstanding commitment to students and new professionals and share a passion for shaping the next generation of ISPOR leaders. “Having worked collaboratively with Zeba with students and new professionals at ISPOR and at Rutgers, I believe this partnership of serving as Co-Editors-in-Chief for Value & Outcomes Spotlight is an opportunity to leverage our complementary strengths, our networks, and our areas of expertise to communicate the value of HEOR to new audiences and to demonstrate the important role ISPOR plays in this field,” said Dr Pizzi.
