AdvaMed Statement on Today's Violence at the U.S. Capitol

WASHINGTON, D.C. – On behalf of AdvaMed, the world’s largest trade association representing medical technology companies, President and CEO Scott Whitaker released the following statement:

“Today’s violence at the U.S. Capitol does not represent who we are or who we should be as a nation. We condemn it. In this country, we settle our political differences by passionately but peacefully seeking changes in policy through the process established by our Constitution. The presidential election – certified by the states, the Electoral College, and the courts – will be ratified by Congress. It is now time to move forward together, as one nation, and build upon what unites us. We look forward to working with President Biden and the new Congress to advance policies that save and improve the lives of the patients we serve.”
