These Healthcare Champions Rarely Make the News

With more than 850,000 employees in the top ten pharmaceutical companies alone, the biopharmaceutical industry could easily boast of its extraordinary numbers of professionals working to develop and deliver life-changing therapies. Yet, it rarely does.

UBC’s Pharma Heroes movement grew out of our desire to recognize and celebrate these amazing professionals who work tirelessly to make the world a healthier place.
