Making a difference

 We aim to make a remarkable impact on the lives of patients, with a focus on supporting independent educational grants and making charitable donations.

AbbVie is committed to supporting our requesters during the evolving COVID-19 pandemic. 

If your AbbVie funded program requires a scope change due to shifting circumstances, please call us at 1-877-228-7177 or email us at abbviegrants@abbvie.com.

We help further education around current, new and emerging sciences and standards of care, as we know they are key to the patient experience.
