Global Town Hall: An Opportunity for Medical Affairs Strategic Leadership During the Pandemic and Beyond
July 28, 2020
The COVID-19 pandemic is affecting Medical Affairs professionals around the world, and each team is responding in different ways. During this live Global Town Hall, we will discuss how Medical Affairs can continue to function during the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as share industry best practices and consider how Medical Affairs could change post-COVID-19. Through patient-focus and peer-to-peer relationships with HCPs, Medical Affairs professionals have a unique role in ensuring the safe and effective use of medicines, vaccines and medical devices, and are also positioned to bring invaluable insights from the field into ongoing R&D. By strengthening our understanding within the pharmaceutical industry of how Medical Affairs can support HCPs and patients in these times, this Town Hall will explore how the role of Medical Affairs can be expanded to maintain quality in a rapidly evolving clinical environment, helping to achieve industry-wide alignment on the issue and potentially saving lives.
Join this webinar for insights from industry-leading experts. This series including follow-on webinars will equip MAPS members and MA professionals worldwide with the tools to fulfill the opportunity for Medical Affairs strategic leadership during the Covid-19 pandemic and beyond.
