CRO Health Decisions Exhibits and Presents at DIA 2017
Durham, North Carolina. Health Decisions, Inc., the full-service clinical research organization of choice for forward-looking biopharma, diagnostics, precision medicine and medical device companies and a leader in women’s health studies, today announced highlights of planned activities scheduled at the 2017 Drug Industry Association 53rd Annual Meeting in Chicago June 18-22. Health Decisions will exhibit in booth #1546.
“DIA is an occasion for sharing information on industry trends and we are pleased that Kevin Bickford, our Executive Director of Clinical Operations, will be speaking on innovative use of social media in patient recruitment,” said Patrick Phillips, D.Phil., Health Decisions CEO. “Health Decisions has used social media to great effect in patient recruitment over the past several years, especially in women’s health. However, it is important for sponsors to understand that the effectiveness of social media as a recruitment tool varies greatly between indications and platforms. Kevin will share some of Health Decisions’ findings in that regard.”
Presentation on Innovative Use of Social Media in Patient Recruitment
Mr. Bickford will be presenting in the “Disruptive Innovation” track session on “Next Generation Patient Recruitment” on Wednesday June 21 at 10:30 in room S501abc at McCormick Place.
Meetings During and Following DIA
“In our experience, the most productive discussions at DIA invariably take place in private client meetings when there is an opportunity to focus on specific development challenges for their programs,” Dr. Phillips said. “We are looking forward to meeting with many clients and potential clients for discussions during DIA.”
Sponsors are invited to schedule a discussion of their development issues with a Health Decisions clinical development expert during or following DIA.
Drawing in Booth #1546
Health Decisions will hold a raffle during DIA 2017 for a Tory Burch tote. DIA attendees are invited to stop by booth # 1546 to enter the raffle.
