Our Philanthropic Philosophy

Our goal is to make a positive impact on patients and communities globally. With that in mind, we support a diversified group of philanthropic causes. Giving takes place at all levels of our company, ranging from large corporate donations, to cash contributions distributed by specific departments, to the generosity of our individual employees. Always keeping in mind that support goes beyond financial contributions, we aim to establish meaningful partnerships with those whose values we share and whose actions truly drive change.

Medical Education Contributions

We provide contributions to hospitals, research institutions, disease organizations, and medical education programs demonstrating our continued commitment to expand medical knowledge and improve healthcare standards worldwide.

Accredited medical education programs

These contributions fund high-quality, independently accredited medical education aimed at health care professionals, designed to raise awareness and understanding about the disease areas in which we focus; improve the knowledge and clinical skills of health care providers; and address the informational, physical, and psycho-social needs of patients and caregivers.

Unaccredited medical education programs

These contributions fund unaccredited activities aimed at educating health care professionals, researchers, scientists, or patients, such as health-related public conferences, symposia, or community awareness campaigns where the program includes topics relating to therapy options, disease treatment, and management.
