It maximizes our integrated approach to serving our emerging healthcare clients and is a natural fit with our present portfolio.

The unit will focus on drug, device and healthcare services launches, patient and physician education, clinical trial recruitment and other marketing initiatives, serving to enhance TRG's ongoing media and investor relations efforts."

"Over the last nine years, we have built an agency whose brand has become synonymous with healthcare investor relations with dedicated professional teams focused on medical technology/devices, biopharmaceuticals, and healthcare services. Our integrated programs include financial and trade media efforts headed by senior vice president, Jason Rando, and support scientific and medical milestones."
