At Chiesi USA, social responsibility is central to our mission statement. We greatly value the partnerships we’ve established with nationwide patient organizations and non-healthcare related community-based charities.
Our employees desire to give back to the communities where we live and work and aspire to partner with the patients and caregivers in our therapeutic areas. Through this focus, we have made a commitment to:
- Invest in our communities to support improvement of health and well-being;
- Enable employees to engage as partners locally and as advocates in our therapeutics areas;
- Contribute to cultural development to demonstrate Chiesi USA’s commitment to serve its local community
It’s in our culture to aspire to do more, and we always have fun in the process.
