MC3 just wrapped up our 1st Mary Anne Wallace Annual Holiday Toy Drive for kids!

Mary Anne was a beloved member of the MC3 team who sadly passed away this year. Mary Anne had a generous spirit and for the past 20 years led a toy drive initiative benefiting the patients and families at the Nemours/Alfred I. duPont Hospital for Children. Many of these children start their hospital stay in the Emergency Department, so families often don’t have toys and comfort items for their children. Mary Anne’s efforts helped make the children’s holidays feel more special.

We plan on keeping this tradition alive for many more years in Mary Anne’s name and memory!

Magnify the Impact with Micro-Learning

Training has evolved significantly in the past decade.  The growing number of millennials in the work force, the need to do more with less, and the 24 hour always-connected work cycle, have all contributed to an environment where traditional training methods need to accommodate the new norm. In pharma this is especially true. Add the complexity of clinical information and the need to know the intricacies of Market Access, and you find yourself pushing the limits of retention for any learner.
