"The rebrand of ClinicalRM to ICON Government and Public Health
Solutions will both extend and solidify ICON's offering to government
services and all those in the global health arena," commented Dr. James

will also help ICON to further leverage our extensive network in Africa,
Asia and the Americas, to help solve some of the most pressing global
health challenges we face today."
