Travis Jones, 2013 Leukemia and Lymphoma Society Man of the Year
Role: Practice Support Liaison
Years with the company: 7
Where I give back: Leukemia and Lymphoma Society
My WHY: I’m a three-time childhood cancer survivor, and I’ve been in the oncology space for over 30 years. So, I understand from a 360-degree view what the patients, their families, the practices and the pharmacies go through. I know how important it is to have someone on the other side of the phone who understands your situation and what you’re going through. Biologics is full of advocates—that’s what we do every day. I love knowing I’ve done something to improve someone’s life, their quality of life or possibly their quantity of life.
I came to Biologics because of the relationship I built with them when I was a social worker at a cancer center. They relieved a lot of my administrative burden so I could spend more time with patients. I saw the compassion they had for patients, I saw they went beyond their job descriptions and I really saw the personable way that the employees treated the patients. I told myself I would work here one day—and now I do. I love working with providers; I’ve been talking to them since I was first diagnosed with Leukemia at age 10. I give them confidence in our ability to care for our patients. No matter what comes up, we‘ll do everything we can to get through those issues, past those hurdles—regardless of whether we dispense or the prescription goes somewhere else.
