Ashfield is pleased to announce its gold sponsorship and speaking participation at the annual eyeforpharma Philadelphia summit being held on May 2nd – 3rd. eyeforpharma is one of the leading commercial pharmaceutical summits bringing together Life Sciences and Healthcare professionals to learn, share and advance the industry.
The 14th annual eyeforpharma conference is a major event for the pharmaceutical industry. An eagerly anticipated event, the conference is focused around a variety of solution providers and pharmaceutical leaders, providing multiple networking opportunities and case studies. Attendees include senior professionals in clinical, sales, marketing, patient adherence and engagement departments and more.
The theme of this year’s conference is centered on “A new pharma: Customer partnerships that prioritize patient value.” Ashfield will be presenting on a number of core topics within this arena, specifically relating to the evolution of the patient support program. This will touch on the spirit of the patient support program, innovation, differentiation and patient/Healthcare Professional (HCP) gaps.
“The goal of eyeforpharma Philadelphia is to redefine pharma’s role as that of a healthcare player in this new consumer-driven health economy,” says Paula Conlon, Project Director for the event. “Ashfield’s session aims to get to the root of what both the patients and HCPs need. We’re excited to have Ashfield on board as they clearly mirror our intentions to drive change.”
Nareda Mills, SVP of clinical operations, will be presenting the topic. Nareda has close to 20 years’ experience in the healthcare and pharmaceutical industry in various leadership roles. Prior to working for Ashfield, Nareda worked in virtually all disease states as the manager of the University of South Florida sub-specialty clinics for over 12 years as a registered nurse.
Nareda’s vast experience with pharmaceuticals range from patient identification to administration, monitoring and compliance to adherence and billing and reimbursement – as she ran one of the largest infusion clinics for biologic injectables in the country while working for USF. Nareda also served as a patient educator while working both in-patient and out-patient at one of the nation’s top 20 hospitals.
“We are thrilled to sponsor a conference that fosters collaboration between the pharmaceutical industry and its partners to improve health outcomes” said Mike Stout, CEO of Ashfield Healthcare. “Ultimately, our mission is to improve lives by partnering with our clients, and coming together at eyeforpharma gives us the opportunity to share our expertise and make a difference.”
