“Merz always strives to bring value to the health care professionals its products serve. Therefore, you can imagine how important it is to always reach out to these health care providers and ask ‘what more can we be doing to help you and your patients?’ The IRC provides that opportunity in an environment that truly demonstrates a willingness to share and grow ideas. The IRC values our contribution and feedback and makes us strive to be better. Merz will continue to participate in this Council as we find it tremendously valuable.”
