#MoreMissouri 2020: Missouri Health Innovation Company Launching Center For “Defense Medicine”

Missouri delivers more than you expect. In Missouri, you’ll find more of everything. More global industries. More diverse assets. More affordability. All month long, Missouri Partnership is celebrating “more” by taking a look back at some of Missouri’s biggest stories in economic development from 2020.
