CPG COMMITS TO PLANTING TREES VIA TREEAPP

July 2022

We are delighted to announce that we have joined Treeapp committing to planting 30 trees a month. The Treeapp is the largest platform for eco-conscious brands demonstrating our commitment to sustainability.

By planting trees with Treeapp, we are having a direct environmental and social impact around the globe. While Treeapp plants in regions that are in desperate need of more trees such as Brazil or Indonesia, they also focus on planting activities in some of the poorest regions around the world to benefit indigenous farmers and local communities with revenues from tree planting.

Treeapp also supports the United Nations SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals) with their planting activities such as aiming to empower women on many of their sites and in Ethiopia all their tree planters are women.

We are looking forward to working with Treeapp and we will keep you updated on our collaboration.

OUR FOCUS ON SUSTAINABILITY

Where do healthcare professionals look for information and resources? 

October 2021

So where do healthcare professionals look for information and resources? It’s the question all our clients want to know to make sure their information is accessible and meeting the needs of their customers.

Our recent survey of healthcare professionals who use Medisa helped to shed some light on this. There isn’t just one place they look for information and resources, HCPs look to a variety of credible and relevant sources from the NHS website, pharmaceutical/healthcare company websites, face to face or virtual meetings, events and also Medisa.

With over 50,000 registered healthcare professionals and patient users, Medisa is established as a trusted online source which healthcare professionals and patients can access to request the information they need.

If you have information and resources which you want to make available online contact Laura D’Souza on 01329 245600 to find out how Medisa can help.
