Excellence in Market Research Awards

For the 3rd year, EphMRA was delighted to have awarded 2 special awards for papers which showcased expertise in healthcare market research.  It is recognised that EphMRA colleagues are engaged in a huge range of healthcare market research initiatives, studies and projects and the Board wanted to take this opportunity to learn more and to enable members to hear more about them.
