    WHAT'S HAPPENING - [view previous events]

    MedComms Networking has evolved from what was largely UK-based activity but now embraces a global community of medical communications specialists, and we welcome participation by anyone working in or around MedComms and the global Pharma industry, anywhere in the world. I am particularly keen to see the development of activities led by other individuals and specifically based in other regions so if you would like to act as a local organiser for - or you would like to provide funding for - such events please contact me directly.

    I'm always happy to chat and all feedback is welcome, so give me a shout anytime or please post your thoughts to the MedComms Networking Linkedin group for discussion.

    Scroll down to see details of activities that are planned for the coming months.

    Meantime, you can see reports of all the previous meetings here.
