  • Developing and supporting leading advocacy programs, working with national advocacy partners in the U.S. including the Be Vocal: Speak Up for Mental Health, COPD Together, and Talk About It for Epilepsy! initiatives. The company has also supported hundreds of other advocacy events held regionally in the U.S., as well as in the U.K. and Canada;
