In addition, Harborside’s deep understanding of the health care space, proven success with scholarly, scientific publications, as well as business and news publications, made them the ideal partner to support the ADA’s efforts to use its multiple channels to match sponsorship messaging with audience in data-driven and effective campaigns.”
