Eileen Francis
Eileen is a reporter for HBW Insight, tracking developments in OTC drug research, manufacturing, regulation, finance, M&A and marketing. She favors stories on e-commerce trends and the industry's drive toward Rx-to-OTC drug switches. Eileen also contributes coverage on the dietary supplement industry. She has a keen eye for pieces that delve into the rising self-care movement and how it is raising the innovation bar for marketers.

Eileen started her journalism career as a reporter for Rose Sheet covering news relating to personal care R&D, new products, M&A and marketing, before assuming the role of managing editor. She later joined the Tan Sheet, broadening her expertise to OTC drugs and dietary supplements. Both Rose Sheet and Tan Sheet now are part of HBW Insight.

Early in her career, she served as a writer for a lobbying firm and as a blogger covering patent law news for an international law firm. Outside of Pharma Intelligence, her freelance work includes articles on business, art and travel. When not sitting behind her desk, Eileen is usually found running on a trail or treadmill.
