UCB Australia proudly supports Epilepsy Action Australia and the launch of “MyEpilepsyKey”.
UCB Australia is an affiliate of UCB, a global biopharmaceutical company based in Brussels, Belgium with a focus on neurology and immunology. We are more than 7,500 people in all four corners of the globe, inspired by patients and driven by science.
Everything we do starts with one simple question: “How can we create more value for people living with severe diseases?".
We see great alignment with the vision and values of Epilepsy Action Australia: Optimal living for people with epilepsy. Both organisations strive for positive impact through innovation and collaboration, always with the people living with epilepsy and their families at the centre of our decisions.
“MyEpilepsyKey” is about providing knowledge, and giving a person greater awareness and control over their condition. We believe that working together will be a mutually beneficial partnership, enabling a greater number of Australians impacted by the condition to be reached and to ultimately lead optimal lives.
UCB Australia wishes Epilepsy Action Australia every success with the launch of “MyEpilepsyKey”.
