    • Robust Peer-Generated Clinical Content: Bringing together PW’s trusted clinical content and Figure 1’s HCP-initiated patient cases expands PW’s digital platform with comprehensive tools for clinicians to exchange ideas in a safe, secure environment. This enables pharma brands to engage HCPs at critical moments when they are deeply immersed and open to learning.
