Keynote: Vlad Coric, CEO, Biohaven Pharmaceuticals
Biohaven nabbed its first drug approval this year with Nurtec ODT for acute migraines—right when the COVID-19 pandemic struck. Coric will talk about the virtual-first marketing strategies that led to Nurtec's quick brand recognition and leading market share. From passionate patient ambassadors, including famous spokesperson Khloe Kardashian, to cheeky social media ads, Coric's tactics are part of a strategy to make Biohaven a cutting-edge modern-day marketer. Coric has led Biohaven since 2015 and before that worked at Bristol Myers Squibb for almost nine years. He is also a medical doctor who has taught at Yale School of Medicine for the past 19 years.

Panel – Truths and Trends in Modern Disease Awareness Campaigns
While disease awareness ads have traditionally run in the months leading up to a drug launch, today’s unbranded campaigns often run long after branded drugs arrive. In fact, the number of disease awareness campaigns has jumped from dozens each year to hundreds as pharma companies look to tell compelling stories that go beyond regulated product ads. Find out what makes a successful unbranded campaign and pick up creative, educational and measurement strategies.

Patient Solutions Deep Dive - How COVID-19 Has Reshaped the Patient Experience—Now and in the Future
The COVID-19 pandemic has fundamentally changed the way patients engage with and experience the healthcare system. More than ever, patients are looking for safe, convenient, consumer-centric options that mirror those they are already familiar with in other industries. In this session, we’ll discuss how those preferences are likely to persist long after the pandemic, and why it’s more important than ever that brands align with adaptable tools that meet patients where they are.

Patient Solutions Deep Dive - How “AND” is Redefining the Point of Care
Whether it's in the doctor's office or in the kitchen, the point of care has evolved into Moments of Care™ (MOC), where access to healthcare is now a choice that can be both virtual and physical.  Matt McNally from Outcome Health will deliver a provocative discussion around in office and telemedicine trends, the need for pharma marketers to start thinking about supporting patients in the Moments of Care™ as an "and" strategy, and how redefining the POC has enabled us to address underserved needs within the broader healthcare system. Learn how Outcome Health’s Moments of Care™ platform is evolving and how the year of 2020 opened opportunities for expansion of key areas within POC marketing.

Patient Solutions Deep Dive - Developing a Privacy Conscience: Avoiding a Cambridge Analytica-Type Privacy Crisis (Or at Least Being Prepared for One)
The mission of the pharmaceutical industry is straightforward: Educate patients about disease states and the therapies that could effectively treat their conditions, as well as enable them to become active participants in their medical journey. But while the "what” pharmaceutical companies can say and the “how” they must say it is well regulated by the FDA, the privacy challenge comes from the “who” you can educate and how you choose to target them. These very real privacy issues are compounded by an increasingly complex set of federal and state laws, as well as self-regulatory guidelines. Privacy issues are probably unavoidable. But are you prepared? Join us as we discuss how you can meet the privacy challenges of today and the future by developing a deeper awareness of your company, your patient and your advertising supply chain.
