Sr. Manager, Strategic Communications United BioSource Corporation (UBC) - , PA, United States

   

Company Profile:
In 2003, we started United BioSource Corporation because we saw unprecedented changes occurring within the health care market that would fundamentally and permanently affect companies that develop and market drugs and devices. We saw increasing government and payor scrutiny of marketing practices. We saw rising fear around the costs of new medications. We witnessed the passage of the Medicare Modernization Act, which legislated the US government into the role of the largest payor for drugs and devices.
