COSMO provides a professional, client-driven communication service with a focus on the Healthcare, Food & Food Science, and Consumer Goods & Services areas
Healthcare communication is COSMO’s core strength. Our specialized teams come from industry and health communication and have access to the extensive knowledge and expertise of our executive consultants and advisors on diseases, their diagnosis and treatments, and the ever changing healthcare policy. With these resources, COSMO is best equipped to craft the most appropriate communication strategies. These communication plans range from raising awareness of diagnosis and treatment options, and promoting socio-economic issues of a disease, to identifying and enacting action for issues surrounding patients, healthcare professionals, and government and regulations.
