Angela Radcliffe

Hi there! I'm a brand transformer who has been innovating in healthcare for two decades.

By the numbers: 20+ years of global healthcare experience, 100+ global clinical trials managed, 3 industry perspectives (marketing, technology, life science) 2 to 20+ staffers managed; +$40million P&L oversight

I have therapeutic expertise in CNS, cardiology, endocrinology, oncology, infectious disease, pain management, rare disease, and women's health and a career lineage that spans MicroStrategy, Cardinal Health, UnitedHealthcare and the Omnicom and IPG networks. My experience in medical marketing and public relations runs the gamut of the product development lifecycle where I have been responsible for the strategic oversight, implementation, and evaluation of clinical trial recruitment efforts, professional education initiatives, and brand promotion - positioning new and existing brands to fill unmet clinical needs.

I’m committed to the pursuit of more authentic patient engagement, giving data ownership back to consumers, the promotion of health literacy for all, and normalizing clinical research a care option.
