“Three mega forces are simultaneously reshaping the healthcare landscape,” remarked Christopher Graves, regional CEO of Ogilvy PR in Asia Pacific, “the rapidly changing demographics in Asia Pacific coupled with the rise of digital social media and the advent of personalized medicine mean we are headed for a great increase in the demand for sophisticated, multi-discipline communications strategies.”
