Optimize Your Distribution Network to Achieve Greater Commercial Success.
September 22–23, 2011 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
Join us to network and establish business relationships that help ensure access, use and reimbursement of your specialty product.
One critical part of product uptake and success is developing and managing the best way to configure your distribution and dispensing channels.
