Pharma Heroes


Tell us about your Pharma Hero: name, email and a little bit about what makes them great.


Pick a charity and we'll donate $25 in their honor.

Thank you.

We'll take it from there. Each Pharma Hero will receive a congratulatory email, recognition on the site and a special plaque.

Pharma Heroes

The heart of the pharma and biotech industry is focused on health, healing and improving lives. We’re proud of that. As an industry, we need to do a better job of recognizing our colleagues who tirelessly fight disease and improve patient lives.

It starts here.  Today.  With us.

The Pharma Heroes program is designed to shine a light on the heroes who walk among us. We want to celebrate the remarkable and largely unrecognized daily acts that move the industry forward.


Nominate a Pharma Hero

You probably know a Pharma Hero. Maybe they sit next to you at the office. Maybe you’ve seen them haunting the halls long after most people have left for the day. Maybe you know someone who has taken the extra step to make sure a patient in need got the medication that would change his or her life.



Change the world with UBC by your side.

You don’t need actual super powers to be a Pharma Hero. All you need is a pharma services company who can help you support patients around the globe. UBC is here to give you the power to make the world a healthier place.
