DIA 2015BBK Worldwide is once again looking forward to attending Drug Information Association 2015 (DIA), which this year will take place from June 15 - 18 at the Walter E.

DIA provides a global, unbiased platform to raise the level of discussion to facilitate innovation that will change the future of healthcare.  

Not only are we working on our annual booth reveal, which will highlight our patient recruitment and engagement services and technologies, (be sure to check it out – booth #2026, and stay tuned into our blog and Twitter feed @BBKWorldwide for a sneak peak), we will be participating in five sessions this year, which will span everything from patient centricity and mHealth to bringing clinical trials into the 21st century.
