Distinguished Entrepreneurs Lunch: Marissa and Samantha Harkness

Tuesday, October 18 | 12:15pm 1:00pm

Marissa and Samantha Harkness, Co-Founders of Pill Skills

Are you interested in pharmacology, biomedicine, pharmaceuticals, medicine, or the art of compassion? Come meet Marissa and Samantha Harkness, two sisters from a southwest suburb of Chicago, who came up with a solution to a problem that most likely has impacted you at some point: swallowing pills! At the ages of 12 and 13 they began solving this problem as entrepreneurs to help their mom swallow pills. In 2020 they developed the Pill Skills Beginner Kit, a product that teaches adults and children how to swallow pills and take medications and vitamins effectively.

This free event is held in Room 5110 Grainger Hall.
