“Inspired by a commitment to the communities we serve, our employees and their families volunteer their time with patient organisations around the world,” said Annamarie Dillon, Director of Patient Advocacy EMEA at Genzyme. “Not only does each event foster employee engagement and support the important work of these organisations, volunteering together with our community partners also helps to advance our collective mission to improve the lives of people living with a rare disease.”
