The Sanofi-Aventis U.S. Community Health Partnership - It's In Our Hands - Has Been Designed To Help Improve Patient Care By Connecting Patients And Caregivers To Healthcare Resources And Services In Local Communities

BRIDGEWATER, N.J., March 5 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Sanofi-aventis announced the initiation of its Community Health Partnership (CHP), It's In Our Hands, in the Miami area, seeking to link Hispanic residents with local healthcare professionals and health resources in their neighborhoods.
