"Avion is a proud to support women's health initiatives and excited to continue our partnership with NPWH," stated Mike Sullivan, Vice President, Sales and Marketing, for Avion Pharmaceuticals. "Prenate® AM is an exciting addition to Avion's Prenate® portfolio that is important to share with the Nurse Practioner community. As part of the spectrum of prenatal nutritional support, we believe it is critical that new OB patients have access to a prenatal vitamin that promotes tolerance to ensure supplementation of key vitamins, minerals and folic acid in the diet. Prenate® AM is designed to help those women who suffer from nausea and vomiting during pregnancy. ACOG (American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology) recommends Vitamin B6 as first line support."
Avion CEO Mark Pugh added, "Avion Pharmaceuticals is proud to have the opportunity to share our newest portfolio addition to support women's health at the NPWH meeting. Avion's goal is to continue to expand on new and innovative products that help promote the health and well-being of moms and babies."
