In 2007, the National Council on Aging, with support from AstraZeneca, created My Medicare Matters, a community-based education and outreach initiative whose goal was to help people with Medicare and their families better understand the Medicare prescription drug benefit. Today, My Medicare Matters helps many of the more than 40 million people with Medicare, 90 percent of all beneficiaries, with comprehensive prescription drug coverage, which helps provide high-quality and high-value healthcare to America’s seniors.
To acknowledge AstraZeneca’s leadership in this area, the National Council on Aging chose to honor AstraZeneca and Linda Palczuk, with its Women of Achievement Award on Thursday, June 27, 2013.

Linda Palczuk, Vice President, Cornerstone and Commercial Excellence, accepted the award on behalf of AstraZeneca, saying, “More than seven years ago, the National Council on Aging recognized the need to support seniors as they navigated through the then new Medicare Part D benefit. Their work to make this program a success is a testament to their commitment to improving the health of seniors. We are proud to have been the founding sponsor of this program, and continue to support it to this day.”
AstraZeneca applauds all the National Council on Aging Women of Achievement Award winners who continue to devote themselves and their businesses to enhancing the lives of our nation’s seniors.
