PinUp: Communicating Relative vs. Absolute Efficacy, Gabby Gottlieb, and Disease Awareness Campaigns

Welcome to the January 9, 2018, issue of Pharma Industry News Update (aka PinUp). This issue focuses on communications, which can be misleading or TMI.

Welcome to the December 19, 2017, issue of Pharma Industry News Update (aka PinUp). Now is when everyone looks back on the old year and begins thinking of the New Year.
