Key Opinion Leaders:

A challenge for companies working with key opinion leaders (KOLs) is to help them through education, meetings, symposiums and conferences to understand the constant changes occurring in the public health arena. In the areas of public health, KOLs offer valuable insights into such areas as disease states and patient treatment regimens, and to new product exposure through literature and their professional circles.

Working with the private sector to build new or expand current relations with key opinion health and medical professionals to open doors that enable them to disseminate new product information and results to the medical community through trusted sources.

AHF will plan and convening opportunities for sector leaders to work together on key issues. We will collaborate with KOLs for a healthier Americas.

Operational Model:
