Let’s Talk Healthcare
The best way to understand the impact of digital media is active, two-way participation. We welcome you to participate in our GCI Health blog and add to our conversation on the various trends and complex issues within healthcare communication.
Wendy Lund, GCI Health’s CEO, served as conference co-chair, the first agency person to ever serve in this capacity, for the ExL Pharma Public Relations & Communications Summit. The Summit was hosted at Celgene Corporation’s headquarters in Summit, New Jersey July 18 and 19. This Summit is a huge moment for GCI Health and offers the agency great exposure to communicators at many of the top companies in the biopharmaceutical industry.
As a marquee partner for the sixth year in a row, GCI Health played a major role in developing the theme of this year’s Summit, “Providing a Clear Path Forward During Chaotic Times,” including working closely with the ExL advisory panel to map out the presentations. GCI Health also led a robust discussion around media engagement in today’s environment that featured an award-winning panel of Susan Wagner, Senior Coordinating Medical Unit Producer at NBC News, Arlene Weintraub, national healthcare and pharmaceutical business reporter, Marie Rosenthal, national healthcare trade editor and reporter, and Becky Lauer, executive vice president, GCI Health’s director of media. Jill Dosik, GCI Health’s Global President, Scientific Communications and Message Impact, moderated the session.
Feedback from the Summit attendees has been excellent, and we are already discussing with ExL Pharma potential themes for next year’s Summit.
