Introduction | Executive Director, Patient Advocacy, Horizon Therapeutics, now a part of the Amgen family

AMY MAGRO currently serves as executive director of patient advocacy at Amgen and has enjoyed a 31-year career spanning healthcare and pharmaceutical marketing, and patient advocacy. Through her work, Magro has driven marketing and patient support programming that support neurology therapies at Lundbeck, and anti-infective and cardiovascular therapies at Abbott Laboratories.
