What Sets Life Apart
THERE'S MORE TO LIFE.
Life isn’t just in our name. It’s in everyone’s name. In every office. We’re entrepreneurial and collaborative. We foster innovation and devour insight. We work hard and dream big.
We bring life to work – reviving and building brands. We’re a network of 60 health & wellness focused agencies offering advertising, PR, digital, event promotion, and healthcare consulting services. We’re former doctors, scientists, and photographers. Current Kung Fu black belts, screenplay writers, and carpenters. We come from all walks of life to provide the best health & wellness marketing solutions for our clients.
INNOVATIVE SPIRIT CREATES BIG IDEAS.
Havas Life is one of the largest fully integrated, global health communications groups. With 60 health-focused offices in over 50 countries, we offer advertising, public relations, event promotion, medical education, digital marketing, direct-to-patient and consulting services. With digital business at our core, we go beyond traditional channels to reach patients, caregivers and healthcare professionals.
We believe great ideas can come from anywhere or anyone – it’s the core of our Creative Business Ideas®. We’ve worked hard to create a highly entrepreneurial, collaborative environment that fosters innovation and builds brands from every direction. What does that mean for our clients? It means we craft ideas that cross business channels and customer segments. It means we offer a depth of knowledge, insight, and commitment equal to your brand team. And, it means that we deliver the big idea that cuts across promotional disciplines as the rule rather than the exception. We combine strategic insights with scientific expertise for many specialized health and wellness programs – from patient support programs and professional communications to strategic PR campaigns, medical education, and managed care.
