2017 National Fall Meeting – Key Speakers – Gerard Maher and Bill Renzo, Sanofi Regeneron

Final speakers and details are getting locked into place for the upcoming United Rheumatology Fall Meeting at the Hyatt Regency Orlando in Orlando, Florida (Oct. 20-21).

With payers, PBMs, and hospital-based systems bringing more and more pressure to bear on community-based rheumatology practices, United Rheumatology remains committed to helping our members preserve their independence and remain sustainable.  As part of this mission, UR and its members need to understand the economics of the drug distribution system, how manufacturers and payers segment the physician market, and efforts by payers and biopharma companies to create so-called “value-based payment” models.  Please join us for a presentation and discussion on these topics during our upcoming meeting in Orlando.

Gerard Maher, Sanofi Senior Director, Thought Leader Liaisons, Rheumatology, Sanofi Regeneron
Bill Renzo, Sanofi Senior Director for Market Access, Sanofi Regeneron
