Weber Shandwick

At Weber Shandwick, engagement has always been the cornerstone of health communications.We make health matter. Health is a basic human right, it is personal and emotional. For us, health is the foundation of a better world. Our approach goes beyond disseminating messages; it is about establishing meaningful connections. We create and foster thoughtful, two-way dialogue. We engage with our audiences always, and in all ways.

What does it mean to really engage? We have developed the Science of Engagement to understand the mechanics, biology, chemistry and physics of engagement so we can build reputations,brands and campaigns. What motivates a patient to speak with his or her physician about startingor changing a treatment? How does a patient organisation formulate a message that actually creates a movement? How does a government official absorb information to consider facilitating patient access? Understanding the Science of Engagement results in a programme that resonates.They spark conversations, educate and inspire. They become shareable, viral and alive.

We are unique because we are grounded in science and bring a broad spectrum of experts to meet every need. From PhDs and public health experts, to consumer health advocates and market access specialists, Weber Shandwick Health incites action and improves health outcomes.

We engage. We will continue to do so because it is what we have always done. Weber Shandwick Health. Engaging, always.
