Audrey Sheppard Women’s Health Consulting acts as a catalyst for companies and national advocacy organizations to form partnerships, facilitating awareness of and progress on conditions/diseases in women’s health. Specialty areas include: 

STRATEGIC ADVOCACY: Working with ASWHC, there will never be a cookie cutter approach. Your company/organization will be introduced to others, in one-on- ones and in group meetings designed for you to effectively start furthering mutual objectives. ASWHC takes care of the finest details including: who should be seated next to whom, whose meeting can be paired with whom, what is the appropriate venue for a specific event, what time of day will draw your targeted group, what week to avoid due to the Congressional calendar, to name a few factors. 

Building relationships through strategic advocacy puts you in prime position to advance:

  • Awareness of a condition
  • Clinical trial recruitment
  • Investor relations
  • Executive agency grant proposals
  • Post-approval marketing

GOVERNMENT AFFAIRS: We are expert on the inner-workings of Capitol Hill and the executive branch, particularly HHS. We arrange Congressional meetings and conferences, attend many prominent political events, and maintain strong working relationships with key elected officials and other noted opinion leaders.

FDA: If you expect to face any of the situations below, you will want to plan for an advocacy effort:

  • a drug/medical device likely to face a FDA Advisory Committee meeting;
  • a condition or disease likely to come before a FDA Patient-Focused Drug Development Workshop;
  • preparation for FDA approval
