WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS, WV (WVNS) -- A Greenbrier County native, now working for a major pharmaceutical company, returned home to her roots to shed light on how the company was started and the new things happening.
Marci McClintic Coates is now the head of Global Policy at Mylan. She grew up in White Sulphur Springs and quickly learned the history of the company. To her surprise, Mylan was founded in her hometown.
Coates said she is filled with pride to come from a place where so many people believed in the two young men who started the company, and to see what Mylan has become now.
"So many people in this area invested in these two young men because they thought that not only did they have the dream, but they had the grit behind it to achieve it," Coates said.
Mylan recently announced a partnership with West Virginia University. Mylan provided a gift of $5 million for the next ten years to benefit 4-H programs in all 55 counties in West Virginia.
The FDA also recently approved a new drug for Mylan. The complex, biosimilar drug is used to reduce the risk of infection for cancer patients going through chemotherapy.
