October 18, 2012 (CHAPEL HILL, NC) Thought Leader Select, a Chapel Hill, NC-based consulting firm serving the biopharmaceutical, medical device, and diagnostics industries, announces the commencement of a national engagement focused on medical centers of excellence in obesity with a top U. S. biopharmaceutical company.
The company, part of a select group of global leaders in drug development for products treating the condition of obesity, approached Thought Leader Select for support with a variety of collaborative efforts, including medical science liaison outreach to leading universities, medical schools, teaching hospitals, and specialty clinics in this area. Having already worked with Thought Leader Select to form rosters of key opinion leaders in endocrinology, primary care, nursing, pharmacy, and long-term care in the treatment of type I and type II diabetes and obesity, the company has now chosen Thought Leader Select to pinpoint the leading centers of excellence in the treatment of obesity in the United States.
Known for the versatility of applications for its in-house research and analysis, Thought Leader Select’s research group will assess the skills and experience of selected centers, detailing the collaborative activities of leading physicians and other health care professionals, including registered nurses, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, clinical pharmacists, and medical researchers, the people who advance the science of medicine and patient care, through basic and clinical research, scientific journal publishing, treatment guidelines, and more.
Throughout the remainder of the engagement, Thought Leader Select’s consulting team will provide strategic guidance, tactical recommendations for strengthening collaborative relationships with centers-based program leaders in the area of obesity, and a suite of tools to promote the advancement of medical science in the treatment of obesity with selected centers across the country.
“While we do stellar work across multiple therapeutic areas, this relationship maintains Thought Leader Select’s continued excellence in assisting companies with strategies and recommendations for engaging the right key opinion leaders and centers of excellence in obesity,” stated Brian Castle, Director of Global Marketing and Client Relations at Thought Leader Select. “We are honored to have been selected as a partner for this initiative, since we know that our work will actually help them make a huge impact around the country in the treatment of obesity. We view this, along with every other client engagement for which we are selected, as an opportunity to make a positive contribution in the advancement of treatments for patients everywhere.”
