Two people shaking hands


Dr. Bohn's clientele includes large and small global pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies. Within these companies, she works with Pharmacoepidemiology, Health Economic and Outcomes Research, Medical and Clinical Affairs, and Drug Safety groups. When working with a client, Rhonda may work as an epidemiology team member (supporting one or more products or therapeutic areas) or she may serve as a strategic advisor (e.g. during times of organizational growth). She also works on independent projects requiring epidemiology expertise in conjunction with an assembled multi-disciplinary team.

Rhonda’s value resides in her knowledge base, her ability to provide quality deliverables, her accessibility, and her ability to deliver with quick turnaround.

In addition, Rhonda has strong relationships with academic groups, with whom she provides methodological and therapeutic area expertise on a project-by-project basis. Large and small consulting companies call upon Rhonda to engage her in studies where her expertise is needed.
