Pharmaceuticals Firm Supports National Convention

 

Vanda Pharmaceuticals, Inc. provided generous financial support to the recently completed BVA 68th National Convention in Spokane as a major sponsor of two events and a participant in this year’s convention Exhibit Hall.

Specializing in the development of new medicines that address and treat central nervous system disorders such as sleep problems in the blind and visually impaired, Vanda made possible an unprecedented “Lunch and Learn” session with Dr. Steven Lockley of Harvard Medical School. The presentation was entitled “Diagnosis and Management of the Non-24-Hour Sleep Disorder.”
