NEW YORK—Weber Shandwick has become the nation’s first healthcare communications agency in the U.S. to be fully trained and certified in regulatory compliance for public relations. The training and certification was conducted by the Center for Communication Compliance, which provides expert-reviewed training, certification, and consultation dedicated to regulatory compliance literacy for healthcare communications professionals.
Weber Shandwick’s U.S. healthcare practice certification with CCC is intended to ensure clients that its healthcare team nationwide has practical fluency in the most current regulatory guidelines governing the healthcare industry. As part of the certification, the Weber Shandwick healthcare team will also be updated within 48 hours on changes or additions to the regulatory landscape.
“Today’s healthcare regulatory environment is becoming increasingly complex and up-to-date regulatory compliance know-how is a fundamental requirement in our business,” said Laura Schoen, president of Weber Shandwick's global healthcare practice.
