GSK Canada supports independent medical education, professional organization memberships and sponsorships, and other medical grants.
GSK recognizes a responsibility to support activities in our medical community, whether related to our commitment to support medical education where there is patient need and mutual scientific interest, to support professional societies’ initiatives, or to assist healthcare organizations or projects that promote other healthcare goals. In all of our interactions we aim to be transparent about our work, operate with integrity, and always put the interests of patients first.
