EphMRA Awards 

EphMRA members are engaged in a huge range of healthcare market research initiatives, studies and projects and the Board wants to take this opportunity to learn more and to enable members to show case their expertise.  Four Awards have been outlined - members can submit their ideas when announced and these will be evaluated.  Winners will be announced in April 2018 to allow for time to be included on the June 2018 Conference Programme should the submitters want to be included.
