Health is so personal, and talking about illness with a group of strangers isn’t an easy thing for everyone to do. But often, we at m+p get the opportunity to listen to these very personal stories and pass them directly onto the companies creating life-saving medicines. It’s incredibly meaningful in and of itself. And sometimes we get the honor of sharing that work even more broadly than with just our immediate client.
Last week, temperatures in the northeastern and midwestern United States dropped to record lows. Wind chills were in the negatives (reaching as low as negative 60 degrees Fahrenheit in some places), schools and businesses were closed, flights were grounded. All this and more catastrophe was caused by one weather event – our first word to watch – the Polar Vortex.
