Avanir is actively involved in the community through grants to various organizations such as the National MS Society, MS Association of America, ALS Association of America, Brain Injury Association of America, National Stroke Association, Alzheimer’s Association as well as various other patient advocacy associations. With over 100 colleagues in the company’s commercial field teams, we are working with the local chapters of these associations at health fairs, etc. to help in the education for these conditions. Avanir not only provides grants but participates in local walks/runs as well as other fund raising efforts.
The experiences gained by the Avanir colleagues through their participation with these associations have proven to be invaluable in creating a very special culture with a clear mission of developing and commercializing therapies for central nervous system conditions of high unmet medical need.
