    Hi all,

    Great opportunities at Abbott, Novartis, PharmIntell, and other adjacent health science information organizations. Accidentally quite a lot of there right now for those of you living in or interested in relocating to the Chicago-area, too. As always, don't forget that many hiring managers have some additional flexibility right now to hire in a remote-work environment. Don't rule yourself out-- it's always worth applying and starting the conversation.

    Best wishes and happy job hunting,
