Pharmacovigilance 2.0 – Let Freedom Ring in Philadelphia!

Posted by Jim Davis on April 28, 2017

The moment will be big, not because we are exhibiting for the first time (we are), or because we are demonstrating significant advances in drug safety data (we are), or even because I’m a huge fan of the Philadelphia Eagles (I am) and Bob has always dreamed of imitating Rocky and running the 72 stone steps before the entrance of the Philadelphia Museum of Art (he hasn’t).

How New-Agers and Hipsters are Popularizing Drug Safety

Posted by Andrea Demakas on September 5, 2014


I’m not usually one to keep up with the latest trends, but I have been noticing how some of the fads from the past couple of years could actually make drug safety seem cool to the general public. Yes, I said it. We’re probably going to be extremely popular after this blog post goes out.

Hipsters are like cool nerds, with hats and extravagant mustaches. New-agers are like health nuts, with the addition of conspiracy theories and healing crystals.
