Laura Schoen Named to PRWeek and MM&M’S 2018 Health Influencer 50 List
Laura Schoen, president of Weber Shandwick’s global healthcare practice and chair of Latin America, has been named a top health influencer in PRWeek and MM&M’s annual Health Influencer 50 list for the third consecutive year.
The 2018 list recognizes the healthcare industry’s “heavyweights” – those who are bringing modern marketing skills and inspirational leadership at a time of considerable disruption as medicine and technology continue to converge.
“One of Laura’s mantras is to ‘do something you love with purpose and strive to make a difference,’” said Gail Heimann, president, Weber Shandwick. “Throughout her 18-year career at Weber Shandwick, Laura has done just that – made a difference in our clients’ businesses and patient lives by driving transformational healthcare work.”
Schoen has led the growth of Weber Shandwick’s global healthcare practice since joining the firm in 2000, providing strategic counsel and insights to some of the most visible multinational healthcare-related brands in the world. Under her leadership, Weber Shandwick’s work, in partnership with clients, has been recognized by Lions Health, CLIOS Health, PRWeek and The Holmes Report.
