At Porterhouse Medical, we are passionate about the work we do with our partners to help improve people’s lives, which includes using our communications expertise to help raise awareness of disease symptoms as well as making regular donations to charity.
World Ovarian Cancer Day is the initiative of the World Ovarian Cancer Coalition (WOCC) and occurs every year on 8 May. The objective of the day is to raise awareness, funding and support for all of the women around the world living with ovarian cancer, along with their families and patient support organisations.
The Porterhouse Medical Group is delighted to announce another promotion within our scientific services team. In recognition of an excellent start to her career with our scientific and medical communications agency, Rosemary has been promoted to the position of medical writer after just 6 months.
On the last day of February each year, countries worldwide take part in Rare Disease Day to raise awareness of a diverse group of disorders that affect fewer than 1 in 2,000 people in Europe or fewer than 200,000 people in the USA.
The Rare Disease Day campaign aims to combat these issues by raising awareness among the public, healthcare professionals, researchers, industry, and policy decision-makers.
Each year, Porterhouse Medical chooses a local charity to support as a key part of our mission to improve people’s lives. In 2017, we partnered up with SportsAble, an organisation that supports people with disabilities through sports and social activities (www.sportsable.co.uk). We raised a total of £2,544 through numerous events, such as a team-building day at the centre run by SportsAble in Maidenhead, and the SportsAble Static Wheelchair Push Challenge at our offices in Reading. This year, we are proud to announce that we will be raising funds for another admirable local charity: The Willows Support Group.
Every year on 4 February the global population unites for World Cancer Day, with the aim of highlighting that millions of potentially avoidable deaths occur each year as a result of cancer. More than a third of cases could be prevented by adopting healthier behaviours; therefore, World Cancer Day is the ideal opportunity to spread this message and raise the profile of cancer within the global media.
The Porterhouse Medical Group is a proud sponsor of the 17th Annual International Publication Planning Meeting (San Diego, February 5-6), Strategies to Improve Operations and Compliance in Medical Communications
As part of the Porterhouse Medical Group’s mission to help improve people’s lives, we use our communications expertise to raise awareness of diseases, and participate in many fund-raising activities for charity. We also adopt a local charity to fundraise for each year. Last year, we had an enjoyable and often energetic time supporting SportsAble.
