David Whitrap

Vice President of Communications and Outreach

David oversees ICER’s stakeholder outreach and media relations, raising nationwide awareness of ICER’s value assessments and highlighting opportunities for organizations throughout the US health system to deliver broad patient access to sustainable, high-value care.

Prior to joining ICER in 2017, David spent nearly two decades supporting the strategic communications of US government agencies, healthcare corporations, and other nonprofits. He led external communications for both a commercial biotech company and a Fortune 20 pharmacy benefit manager, and these cross-industry experiences provide him an unusually broad view of the tensions related to US drug pricing, reimbursement throughout the pharmaceutical supply chain, and incentives for biomedical innovation.

David graduated summa cum laude from the University of Missouri with a Bachelor of Arts degree in English and a Bachelor of Educational Studies degree in business communications.
