Supporting Patient Community

Supporting Patients and Our Local Communities Through Charitable Giving

Through our charitable giving and employee volunteerism, we’re proud to positively impact the patients we serve and the places where we live and work.

Our charitable contributions support therapeutic area initiatives as well as local community programs. Applications are evaluated competitively with emphasis given to innovative programs with measurable outcomes that address disparities or unmet needs.

All contribution requests are reviewed for compliance with our policies and relevant legal and industry requirements, including guidelines set forth by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America (PhRMA).

NOTE: If you are looking for support for educational programs directed toward healthcare professionals please see the Medical Education section of this website.
