Amgen Marketing Senior Manager, Bone Health, HCP Promotions in Thousand Oaks, California

Amgen is a values-based organization with a sense of shared purpose toward our mission: to serve patients.

Osteoporosis affects nearly 13 million men and women in the U.S. and contributes to an estimated 2 million osteoporosis-related fractures (bone breaks) per year. Although osteoporosis has many generic treatment options available, Amgen has emerged as the leader in this therapeutic area with our flagship brand, Prolia® which launched in 2010, and EVENITY ® which launched in Q2 2019. EVENITY helps these women who are at high risk for another fracture reduce their risk of a subsequent osteoporosis-related fracture, which could be a life-altering event. EVENITY is an important therapeutic development – it is the first and only bone builder with a unique dual effect that both increases bone formation and reduces bone resorption (or bone loss) to rapidly reduce the risk of fracture.
