Drexel Business Solutions Institute (DBSI) and Drexel Alumni Association held an event at Johnson & Johnson’s interactive museum themed “Our Story at the Powerhouse” on Jan. 31.

Built in 1907, the Powerhouse is the oldest building on the company’s global headquarters campus in New Brunswick, N.J. It showcases the remarkable people and ideas behind the world’s largest healthcare company. The Powerhouse does this through a multisensorial approach that combines storytelling and immersive experiences including smell and touch.

The event was a fitting conclusion to Johnson & Johnson’s monthlong engagement with the University’s community at-large as Drexel’s Corporate Partner of the Month for January.

Remarks were made by Drexel’s Assistant Vice President of Alumni Relations Lauren Villanueva, and LeBow College of Business Assistant Clinical Professor Dr. Brad Sodowick, who spoke about trends in the pharmaceutical industry and academia’s reaction to those trends. Double Dragon Bruce Pashko, Sr., Director of Corporate IT Assurance, gave remarks about Johnson & Johnson’s impressive history and innovative future. The event was attended by more than 40 Drexel University alumni.
