Anna Walz | CEO, MedEvoke
Anna Walz is a 25-year veteran in the pharmaceutical industry. She is the CEO of MedEvoke, which she founded in 1999. MedEvoke is dedicated to working with Medical Affairs leaders to drive alignment through development of clear medical strategies that can be globally communicated, measured, and analyzed. This has, for the first time, enabled Medial Affairs to track the impact of internal efforts on the external scientific and digital exchanges.
Anna, who often speaks on the topics of medical strategy, launch excellence, impact metrics for medical affairs, female entrepreneurship, and diversity in the biosciences, is also a regular guest-lecturer on the topic of Pharmacology & Drug Marketing at the Rutgers Medical School. In addition to speaking, Anna has a keen interest in her own continuing education and is a graduate of both the Tuck-WBENC Executive Education program and the Entrepreneurial Master’s Program (EMP), a joint collaboration of the Entrepreneurs’ Organization (EO) and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT).
Anna has been one of the most vocal champions for MAPS since its inception, has served as Co-Chair of the Standards & Guidance Committee, and is currently serving on the newly-chartered Fund Development Committee. Outside of her professional achievements, Anna earned her black belt in Shito Ru karate, is a multiple marathon runner, and enjoys weightlifting at her local CrossFit gym.
